What is my car registration
Vehicle licensing (rego)
Most vehicles need to have a vehicle licence before you can use them on public roads. You pay a fee for the licence and you get a vehicle licence label to display on the vehicle.

registered person is the person recorded on the Motor Vehicle Register as the person responsible for the vehicle.
This isn’t the same as legal ownership (and the Motor Vehicle Register doesn’t record legal ownership).
This page focuses only on your responsibilities for licensing your vehicle. Vehicle licences expire
