Lots of cars still seem to have rego stickers on them, even though they are being phased-out — you haven’t needed to have one on your car since the end of last year.
…from 1 January 2014, Victoria will abolish registration labels for light vehicles, including passenger cars.
How will people know when they need to pay registration?
Although registration stickers will be no longer issued, there will be no change to the traditional reminders which car owners are used to receiving.
VicRoads will continue to send vehicle registration renewals notices around six weeks before registration is due, and a reminder letter will be sent if registration is not paid by the due date.
They also note that most other states have either already abolished registration stickers, or are about to.
Given it’s May and many more than half of cars still seem to have them, I assume many have expired but not been removed.
I peeled sticker off a few weeks ago, well after it expired. It took quite some time to remove completely, but on the bright side, I guess I’ll never have to do that again.
