Despite being one of the less populated states in Australia, the Northern Territory (NT) still has over 150,000 vehicles on its roads . The Northern Territory Government requires that all vehicles driven on public roads hold current NT registration.
The responsibility to comply with this legal requirement rests with the driver of the vehicle. This applies to both new and used vehicles.
With this in mind, we recommend that anyone responsible for a vehicle conducts a free rego check to ensure peace of mind and avoid the heavy penalties which can apply to drivers caught driving without valid registration.
A NT rego check will tell you whether a car is registered or not, whether it’s been in a major accident and been deemed a write off. It also tells you the sale history of the car.
A free NT registration check (rego check) can be done online to:
- Check whether a vehicle is registered in NT
- Check vehicle registration expiry date
- Vehicle inspection date (if needed)
What do I need?
You’ll need the vehicle’s number plate (registration plates) or VIN number (if the car was manufactured after 1989) to undertake a free rego check. Click here to check a NT rego online.
Why should I check my registration?
In 2015, 49 people died on NT roads . We all want to avoid accidents - which can cause injuries or even death - and one of the easiest ways to check a car’s history is by running a free rego check. This will give you the sales history, and if a car has had many owners it may indicate wear and tear or other issues with the car.
The Northern Territory Government monitor registrations as part of other routine operations, such as red light cameras. Remember to check your registration to protect yourself from heavy fines or loss of license – and protect yourself and your passengers from injury or even death.
