In 2015, there were over 230 fatal car accidents in Victoria. It’s important to make sure you check that your car, or any car you decide to drive, is registered. This is one of the simplest ways to check the safety of a vehicle, ensuring that it hasn’t been in an accident where it was written off.
VicRoads monitors vehicles in the state of Victoria, and anytime an incident such as speeding or running a red light is detected by cameras, a check is done to ensure that the car is in fact registered.
A free registration check (rego check) for vehicles registered in VIC can be done online on the VicRoads Department website to:
- Check whether a vehicle is registered on VicRoads
- Check car rego expiry date
- Check Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer and expiry date
- Check any registration restrictions
- Confirm the vehicle model and body type
What do I need?
You’ll need the vehicle’s VIC registration plate number.
Why should I check my registration?
In order to drive a vehicle on public roads in the state of Victoria, it must be registered. Heavy fines and penalties apply to any driver caught driving an unregistered car.
In order to avoid such penalties, it’s important to run a VIC Rego Check. This can also help to ensure that you don’t get found personally liable for any damage or injury which is caused by an accident in which you are at fault.
Checking the registration of your car helps to ensure the safety of you and any passengers in your care.
