- Renewing the registration of a motorised road vehicle is an annual necessity, much like submitting tax returns.
- Registration is managed by state or territory bodies, not at the federal level.
- The common process across states and territories includes:
- Renewing compulsory third party insurance (or CTP)
- Attainment of a roadworthy certificate from an authorised mechanic
- Payment of a registration renewal fee
- Before the wheels of your car can hit the road you require compulsory third party insurance (CTP).
- An upgrade on CTP is third party property damage insurance, and third party fire and theft.
- The highest form of vehicle cover in Australia is comprehensive car insurance.
