With over 1.6 million vehicles on the Western Australian roads, the Department of Transport in Western Australia (WA) are conscious of keeping drivers and passengers safe.
One of the easiest ways to maintain the safety of people traveling on roads in WA is to ensure that car registrations are up to date. A registration (rego) check can inform a driver, or potential buyer, whether the car has been in a major accident that’s meant it was written off – or whether it’s changed owners a lot, which can sometimes indicate that there are problems with the vehicle.
The state of WA legal requirement is that any motor vehicle in the state is registered, and the responsibility rests with the owner to ensure this is maintained.
A free registration check (rego check) in Western Australia can be done online to:
- Check whether a vehicle is registered in WA
- Check car rego expiry date
- Check Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer and expiry date
- Check any registration restrictions in the state
- Confirm the vehicle model and body type
What do I need?
You’ll need the vehicle’s WA number plate (registration plate number) or VIN number to be able to check the registration status.

Why should I check my registration?
The WA Government implements severe penalties for driving an unregistered vehicle, and monitors registrations routinely as part of any other road safety processes, such as random breath testing.
By checking the registration of your vehicle, you’re not only protecting yourself from heavy fines, but you’re also helping to protect the safety and wellbeing of yourself and anyone travelling in your car.
