No more registration stickers

Hi Everyone,

I read on the RAA website newsletter, that from July 1st, there will no longer the option for 9 or 6 months...

They are only keeping 3 & 12 months! Gee as if people are not doing it stuff, I'm glad they didn't take the 3 month option, as that would bugger me right up, It's hard enough keeping a car on the road as it is!

With that I guess they will put up the registration in the June budget!

whats's next?

cheers for taking the time to read this

Lise

So sorry for the LATE reply, I guess you have found that out? As I'm not sure if it is in every state, well not yet anyhow!

3lions says: Hi Justo,

It's just a joke, on tonight News the amout of outstanding debt owed to the Electricity company here in SA....like in the billions...of unpaid bills? Incredible
So in the end all us bill paying people who live pay bills ect...we will all end up paying, they are always putting the costs up, it's getting out of hand...getting harder and harder to make the money go round, seriously!

mick4116 says: Hi agree completely i know people here in south australia who just wont pay anymore a lot of people are starting to do that with fines and stuff, they say take me to court put me in prison i wont pay. i feel like doing the same but then they will take your possesions if you dont pay. Then again if you have nothing what can they take so the ones that are going to suffer the most are the people who do have money and things to lose
After living here my whole life 40 plus years i have never seen anything so terrible as the revenue raising tactics of all governments State and Federal.
The GST was meant to gain revenue and it did Millions, the poker machines millions but they still want more and more and more.
Next the GST will go up to 15 Percent i would watch that space
all the best

trix56 says: We have found this a distinct PAIN. Luckily my partner suddenly wondered when his bike reg was due because he only had 2 days to go. Was also driving my car this week and wondered when reg was due. My eyes immediately went to where sticker used to be but of course there wasn't one. This entailed a quick search for the rego details paper when I got home.
I know they send the bill out about a month before but it is easy to forget in a busy month.
And yes, as a pensioner I'd be lost without the 3 month period but partner wanted to reg the bike for 6 months but no option. Reply

3lions says: Hi trix56 & everyone,

sorry for my late reply to all your comments...........that's another topic! lol

I agree trix56, I too am a pensioner and don't know if I in all seriously, I could keep the car on the road without the 3 month rego.
As it's hard enough keep a car running as it is.
I too totally understand, I do NOT keep the paper the give you when you go to renew it, so thats all the same...they still send the reminder, they give you another piece of paper saying it registered, and to keep this in your car...yes course, with all my details on there.Dont think so...they can check it on their incar system, it's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$

And they did increse the payment by $10!!!!!

Thanks again everyone, am struggling in the SA heat!!!!!!

Have a good evening :) Reply

blondie72 says: Hi Lise,

Just wondering...I'm a pensioner too but don't have to pay the registration fees at all? Why do you pay registration fees, is that because it is different state to state? I'm in NSW? I pay for pink slip (road worthy certificate) usually $35 and my green slip (mandatory third party insurance) usually around $350 for 12 months. Sorry, but I'm just trying to understand the difference. Reply

3lions says: Hiya blondie72,

No need to appologise :)
We here in SA, dont have to take our cars to get road worthy checks before we have to register them, thats a great idea, it would take more than half the cars off the road here!!!!
Its crazy, all in Australia, but so many different road rules, people who went from SA to VIC for this years footy finals, were getting fined for no rego stickers, it was a nitemare apparently.

Thanks for your reply, I'm sorry the delay :)
Have a good day,

jjdrer says: To the best of my knowledge they have already stopped sending out stickers. In some cases they aren't sending accounts either. The onus is on the owner to remember or keep a record of when it is due. If you are driving somebody else's car, you are the one that gets fined if driving an unregistered vehicle (don't forget it also has no 3rd Party Compulsory Insurance then). The Police will possibly put the vehicle in storage too. If you are driving without a licence you could very easily get caught by the Police too. They can key in the Rego. details on their in-car computer and it shows the registered owner and whether or not the person has a current or suspended license. They definitely confiscate your car and put it into storage. You don't get a choice of Towing Operator. Some of them I wouldn't allow to tow a wreck.

if the government take off 9 or 6 months, it will be hard for everyone to keep up with the car. Specially with the insurance+ rego. therefore fingers crossed

jjdrer says: Registration used to go up in SA at the beginning of September, only days before ours was due. The often delayed sending out our account and if you enquired in advance they couldn't or wouldn't tell you how much it would be. Too bad if you were going away for a holiday before the bill arrived. I personally know a person who wrote a cheque for their trailer registration as they were using it to go away for a break. When they took it to the Registration Branch they were told that the bill had just been issued and the fees had gone up. They offered to use the cheque and pay the balance in cash as they were leaving the next morning and they were told they couldn't do that. They didn't have the cheque book with them or enough cash on them to pay the whole bill in cash and there was no bank in the vicinity. Eventually in desperation they ask to see the manager who told them that they had no right to ask to see him. Things got a little heated and the customer reminded the manage that their taxes etc. paid his wages. He accepted the cheque and cash, then complained about having to issue the registration sticker then instead of a few days later. Now they are saying that the onus is on the owner or driver of the vehicle to ensure that it is registered. Notices do not always arrive on time and there has been fines issued. Many people do not carry registration papers in their cars in case it is stolen or damamged in some way in which it is destroyed. Therefore if another person drives it they have to rely on the owner being honest when replying that the vehicle is registered, and they lie, if they are caught driving it they get fined. The SA Police can do spot checks via the "computer" in their cars but it takes a few days for the details of payment to reach Police records. Reply

It is a pain removing them, but i was told the police can stop u if u have the wrong coloured sticker for that year, would that mean they can stop u anytime without a sticker to check. We sometimes have random registration check blitz here. Anyway whats wrong with keeping your rego in ur purse. I carry mine as they sometimes ask for it. Reply
