There are over 375,000 drivers licensed in Tasmania (TAS), according to the Department of State Growth (Transport) . Being a high traffic tourist attraction, it also means there is a high number of drivers from out of state on the roads at any given time as well.
With so many drivers (and passengers) on TAS roads, the Tasmanian Government have laws in place to help ensure the safety of its drivers and passengers alike.
One of the most commonly used safety check in TAS is to ensure that car registrations are up to date.
A TAS 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 registration check (rego check) can be done online to:
- Check whether a vehicle is registered in Tasmania
- Check car rego expiry date
- Check Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer and expiry date
- Check any registration restrictions in TAS
- Confirm the vehicle model and body type
What do I need?
You’ll need the vehicle’s number plate (registration plates) or VIN number to undertake a free TAS rego check.
Why should I check my registration?
The responsibility lies with the driver when it comes to checking the registration of a vehicle. Just like in other parts of Australia, the Government in Tasmania has penalties in place for anyone caught driving an unregistered vehicle.
Routine road safety checks such as random breath testing or red light cameras will also typically check to see if a car is registered or not.
Potential penalties for driving an unregistered car also include loss of license. It’s important to check the registration of your vehicle to ensure the safety of yourself, your passengers and your bank balance!
