Motor vehicle registration and renewal

Overview

This information applies to motor vehicles already registered in the Australian Capital Territory.

If the motor vehicle is being registered for the first time in the ACT it will require an inspection. For further information refer to the Motor vehicle inspections page.

For information about transfer (including transferring an interstate vehicle to the ACT) and disposal refer to the Motor vehicle registration transfer and disposal page.

For information about heavy vehicles refer to the Heavy vehicle registration and information page.

Light vehicle registration labels

The introduction of the RAPID numberplate identification technology by ACT Policing resulted in the identification and removal of unregistered motor vehicles from ACT's roads without relying on registration labels. Therefore, registration labels have not been required for light vehicles (including trailers) since 1 July 2013.

Road safety contribution and rescue fee

As of 1 July 2015, the fees collected for the Road Safety Contribution will support the ACT Road Safety Fund. The ACT Road Safety Fund funds projects and initiatives related to road safety research and education and road trauma prevention, in support of the ACT Government’s identified road safety strategy. The fee is $2.50 per 12 month registration.

The former NRMA-ACT Road Safety Trust was established in 1992, with the principal objective of enhancing road safety for the benefit of the ACT road-using community. The Trust allocated over $20 million to approximately 340 innovative road safety projects between 1992 and 2009.

The road rescue fee is used to assist funding of the road rescue services in the ACT such as the ambulance and fire brigade services.

Lifetime care and support levy

ACT motorists needing lifetime care as a result of a catastrophic injury now have the opportunity to access a scheme targeted at providing long-term care and support. Further information about the scheme can be accessed on the Lifetime Care and Support Sceme website.

Compulsory third party insurance

The compulsory third party insurance scheme applies in the ACT when you register your car or renew the registration for your car. Further information about the scheme can be accessed on the Treasury website.

Changes to a vehicle's description

If you make any changes affecting your vehicle's description, for example painting it a different colour, replacing the engine or altering the vehicle's configuration, you must notify Access Canberra as soon as practicable and no later than 14 days. The vehicle must be inspected at the Access Canberra Motor Vehicle Inspection Station at Hume (by appointment only) or at an approved inspection station. An inspection fee may be applicable. For further information about inspections refer to the Motor vehicle inspections page.

If approved, the changes will be recorded, and a new registration certificate and label, if applicable, will be issued.

If the changes require additional registration fees to be paid, you must not use the vehicle on the road until payment is made at an Access Canberra Service Centre.

Vehicle maintenance

Maintaining your vehicle is important to ensure it is safe for you and your passengers. Knowing the signs of trouble can also help you to determine when your vehicle might need a service such as:

  • Does your steering constantly need to be corrected?
  • Do the tyres appear damaged?
  • Is the tread on the tyres less than 1.5mm in depth?
  • Do the brakes feel spongy?
  • Are the lenses on any of your lights broken?
  • Are the lights not aligned?
  • Is there any visible rust on any part of the vehicle?
  • Are the coolant, oil and windscreen washer bottle levels low?

When in doubt, an easy acronym which can help is STABLES:

  • steering;
  • tyres;
  • brakes;
  • lights, and,
  • structural rust.

This does not cover everything that requires ongoing maintenance but can serve as a helpful reminder of the main potential problem areas.

In today's busy world, it can be difficult to remember to check for problems with your vehicle. However, checks undertaken on a regular basis should not be overlooked.

Statement of registration details

Unless approved by the Road Transport Authority, a statement of registration details will only be given to the person who is the registered operator or joint operator of the vehicle.

Motor Vehicle Accidents- If you need to identify another party involved

Information to identify another party involved in a motor vehicle accident may only be disclosed in the following circumstances:

  • the request is made by the legal representative or insurance company of the party seeking the information, for the purpose of pursuing a legal claim; or
  • the request is made by a person who provides evidence which satisfies the RTA that the request relates to a legal claim (e.g. confirmation from the person’s solicitor or insurance company that the information is required); or
  • the person whose information is sought agrees to the release of the information.

Only the name, address details and identity of the Third Party Insurer may be released to identify a party to an accident.

Applicants wishing to obtain a search of their own records must supply:

Applicants can apply in person by attending an Access Canberra location. Applications made before 3pm are usually completed on the same day. Applicants may choose to wait until the search of records is completed or the results can be sent by mail, email or fax.

Applicants may also apply by email to ors_documentmanagement@act.gov.au. When applying via email the application form is not required, however, all other requirements mentioned above must be met. Please ensure you include your contact details in your request so we can contact you to arrange a credit card payment.

Lapsed registrations

An ACT registered vehicle may be renewed at any point up until it has been expired for 12 months. After 12 months the registration lapses. This means the registration will need to be re-established not simply renewed. To re-establish a lapsed registration, the vehicle must be inspected. For further information about inspections refer to the Motor vehicle inspections page. Once inspected you can re-establish the registration by completing the application to establish on the back of the inspection certificate and take it to an Access Canberra Service Centre and paying the re-establish fee.

Also if the registration was previously registered in two names, the other operator will also need to complete their details and sign the back of the inspection certificate.

If the vehicle registration has been expired by more than 24 months you will have also lost the rights to display the numberplate for that vehicle. This means that when you wish to have the registration re-established, you will need to bring the numberplates with you to an Access Canberra Service Centre as well as the completed inspection certificate. If the vehicle was previously registered in two names the other operator will also need to complete their details and sign the back of the inspection certificate.

You will be issued with a new set of numberplates. If the numberplates on the vehicle were non-standard numberplates you will be liable for all non-standard numberplate fees to re-purchase the rights to display the numberplate again. If the right to display these numberplates has been sold to another party you will not be able to retain the numberplates. For further information about numberplates refer to the Motor vehicle numberplates page.

Cancelling registration

You can cancel your vehicle's registration at any time unless you have sold your vehicle. If you plan to sell your vehicle without registration you must cancel the registration before selling it.

Access Canberra will refuse an application to cancel registration if there is a possibility that the new owner of the vehicle will unknowingly be driving an unregistered vehicle.

Applications to cancel vehicle registration may be lodged at an Access Canberra Service Centre. Where the motor vehicle has been registered interstate applications may also be emailed or posted.

Voluntary cancellation of registration

A voluntary cancellation is when the registered operator(s) wish to cancel the vehicle's registration. This could be due to the vehicle no longer working or the registered operator(s) no longer needing the vehicle to be registered.

To voluntarily cancel a vehicle's registration the applicant must provide:

  • a completed Application to cancel vehicle registration (PDF 146KB) form, signed by the registered operator(s);
  • the registered operator(s) primary proof of identity documentation;
  • a completed statement about the registration label for vehicles over 4,500kg. (a declaration is provided on the application form if this cannot be provided);

  • a statutory declaration must be provided if the plates have been destroyed, lost or stolen and cannot be surrendered;
  • the registration certificate, if available; and,
  • an Authority to act as an agent (PDF 156KB) form where applicable with the agent's proof of identity documentation.

To cancel a written off vehicle's registration the applicant must provide:

For further information concerning vehicles that have been written off refer to the Written off motor vehicles page.

Vehicle has been registered interstate

When an ACT registered vehicle is sold interstate or the registered operator(s) move interstate the vehicle will have to be registered in that State or Territory. Once the vehicle is registered interstate the ACT registration must be cancelled. This transaction can be completed in person or via post. If applying from interstate you can post or email the below items to Access Canberra.

In this scenario the vehicle's registration will be cancelled as of the date the ACT number plates were surrendered to the interstate authorities, evidence required is the interstate registration certificate and the number plate surrender receipt.

Refunds

In all the scenarios mentioned above a refund of the registration and compulsory third party insurance (CTPI) fees will be generated where:

  • The vehicle was registered; and,
  • The value of any remaining registration and CTPI is greater than the administration fee charged to cancel registration.

The formula used to calculate the refund is days remaining divided by days paid for, multiplied by fee paid. An administration fee is then deducted from the refund.

Refunds can either be sent to the client as a cheque, via EFT by completing an Electronic funds transfer authorisation (PDF 161KB) or the funds can be held by Access Canberra for the client to use for future registration transactions. Refund times will vary depending on the transaction date and refund type.
