Why should I check my registration?
As a driver, it is your responsibility to make sure that the car you are driving is registered – even if it’s not your vehicle. If you’re caught driving a car which isn’t registered then you could be liable for large fines, loss of demerit points or even loss of license.
If the car isn’t registered, it may also mean the car is not covered by CTP insurance. This can drastically increase the potential financial loss you may incur in order to cover any third party damage which occurs in an accident.
A free rego check may also save you inconvenience and money when buying a used car, whether via a private seller or a used car dealer.
It’s not just cars that need to be registered on WA roads, but also caravans, mopeds, motorcycles, tractors and other motor vehicles.
How do I run a free rego check?
Vehicle registration can be checked for free using the registration plates – sometimes referred to as license plates – or the VIN number if the car was made after 1989.
What do I need?
You’ll need the vehicle’s registration plate number to perform a free registration check on a vehicle.
