How to check your car registration status

An online registration check shows the registration history of your car, or one you want to buy. It's free, and is a great way to keep on top of your vehicle’s registration — especially since we no longer have colourful stickers on our windscreens reminding us when to renew.

Check your vehicle registration status online

Each state and territory has their own website:

What information do I get from a registration check?

A registration check will generally provide you with the following details:

  • Registration status and expiry.
  • Make, model and body shape of the vehicle.
  • Purpose of use (private or commercial).
  • Inspection due date.

In some states you’ll also be shown your vehicle’s Compulsory Third Party insurer and policy expiry date.

Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance, also known in NSW as a Green Slip, covers your liability and the liability of anyone else who drives your vehicle, for injuries caused to others in a motor accident. It can also help you cover medical expenses, and offers up to six months of weekly payments for lost income if you’re injured in an accident that’s your fault.

Drivers in NSW, QLD, SA and the ACT have the option to choose their preferred CTP insurer. Find the right CTP Insurance product for you through our network of brands: Suncorp, AAMI, GIO and Apia.
