Goodbye To Rego Stickers

CAR Rego stickers will no longer have to be displayed on windscreens due to the introduction of a new electronic system from Wednesday.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads will be introducing the new system that will apply to all light vehicles including cars, motorcycles, trailers, caravans light buses and motorised wheelchairs.

RACQ spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said the new system means registration stickers will become a thing of the past.


“Motorists will still receive a vehicle registration notice via post approximately four weeks before renewal date, but will no longer receive a rego sticker in the mail,” she said.

The new system will see Gold Coast police using state of the art automatic numberplate recognition to track whether or not the car’s registration is current.

Despite the introduction of the new system, Ms Ritchie says motorists will not be fined if their registration sticker remains on display.
