TAS Rego Check
There are almost 400,000 drivers licensed in Tasmania (TAS), says the Department of State Growth (Transport) . As the state is also a high traffic tourist attraction, the roads are also home to a high number of drivers from out of state.
With so many drivers — not to mention passengers — on TAS roads at any given time, the Tasmanian Government has many laws in place to help ensure their safety.
Of these safety checks, perhaps the most common in TAS is to ensure that a car’s registration is up to date.
A simply TAS rego check will tell you immediately whether or not a car is registered. It will also tell you whether it’s been in a major accident and been formally written off. You even get the sales history of the car.
A free registration (rego) check can be done online to:
- Check if a vehicle is registered in Tasmania
- Check expiry date on the car’s rego
- Check Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer and insurance expiry date
- Check any relevant registration restrictions that might apply in TAS
- Confirm vehicle information such as the vehicle model and body type
How to Perform a TAS Rego Check
You can check a vehicle's registration details via the Department of Transport of the state where the vehicle is registered. Vehicle registration checks in Tasmania can be done at the Tasmanian Department of Transport website.
All you’ll need to get a free TAS rego check is the car’s rego number, or the vehicle’s VIN.
Why Check a Vehicle’s Registration?
It’s the driver’s responsibility to check the registration status of a vehicle. As with every other state and territory in Australia, the Government of Tasmania has strict penalties in place for those caught driving an unregistered vehicle.
Routine roadside safety checks, such as random breath testing or red light cameras, will also check to see if a car is registered or not.
Penalties for driving an unregistered vehicle include heavy fines and loss of license. It’s important to check the registration status of your vehicle to ensure your safety, your passenger’s safety, and your bank balance’s safety.
