Rego Inspections Tasmania George Town Timmins Auto
Before you can legally drive your car in Tasmania, you need to register the vehicle with the Tasmanian Department of Infrastructure, Energy & Resources (DIER).
In Tasmania, a safety inspection (also refered to as 'Rego') is required when you:
• transfer to Tasmania a car registered in another state;
• register a vehicle converted from left-hand to right-hand drive;
• re-register a vehicle whose previous registration expired or was canceled more than three months ago;
• re-register a vehicle that is recorded as repairable write-off.
How to get your vehicle registered
First, you need to make a booking for an inspection through an Approved Inspection Station, such as Timmins Automotive in George Town. When bringing your car in, ensure that you have your Tasmanian drivers licence with you and are provided with a Registration and Motor Accidents Insurance Board (MAIB) application form.
In Tasmania, the cost of registration is determined by your vehicle type. You will also need to pay a fee and/or duty when transferring vehicle registration into another name (when selling/buying a car). See the DIER website for quick reference to registration fees.
How to check if a vehicle is registered
For many, the rego stickers were a handy reminder for when the vehicle's registration is due. Now that they are phased out, DIER will continue to send you a renewal notice about 6 weeks before the registration of your car expires. If you forget to pay your registration, a reminder notice will be sent out 21 days after the expiration of registration.If you are driving someone else's car or are in doubt as to whether the vehicle is registered, use the Registration Status Service at transport.tas.gov.au. It is an offence to drive, park or stand an unregistered vehicle on a public street, even if you are not the owner.
