65,000 people in NSW were caught driving an unregistered vehicle in 2018

It can happen to anyone. You’re driving a car (you might not even own it, it could be a company car or your parent’s car) and you don’t realise the rego is overdue. Not only is it illegal, the ramifications could be financially disastrous as your CTP Insurance (green slip) may no be longer valid if your car isn’t registered. This means if you’re involved in a crash, you could be held personally liable for compensation to anyone who was hurt.

Police now have automatic number plate recognition technology which makes it easy to detect when someone is driving an unregistered vehicle and with this technology rolling out quickly, more drivers are falling foul of the law. According to Revenue NSW, around 65,000 people in NSW were caught driving an unregistered vehicle in 2018 – 5,000 more than the year before.

  • Minimum On the Spot fine of over $1,200 for driving an unregistered vehicle whether you own it or not
