Rego Renewal Reminder - Free Reminder Sticker

free sticker for your information..

So after reading about some road users forgetting to pay their rego due to no longer having a window sticker,
here is a reminder that www.greenslips.com.au can send you a free sticker for your car windscreen.

https://www.greenslips.com.au/registration-a-ctp-greenslip-r...

They will send you as many as you ask for.
Hint: if you pay rego yearly, don't pout the year on the sticker, just write in the day and month,
the year is irrelevant unless you pay by one of the other time options, i.e. 6 months etc.

You can also put in details to see who has the cheapest greenslip for your vehicle and details etc.

    The fact that we have to have a government funded sticker campaign for this just shows the mentality of people.

    If someone really needs a sticker on their car to remind them of their rego due date, surely they could just … I don't know … buy a couple of stickers from the local newsagent and solve the problem.

    I shudder to think how much government money gets wasted on schemes such as this because people have no ability to solve their own problems.

      My thoughts exactly, there are so many ways to keep on top of any renewal.

      Is it government funded?
      Greenslips.com.au is a commercial entity isn't it? The stickers appear to be a marketing tool.

      https://www.greenslips.nsw.gov.au/ is the government site.

      Even better, just get a permanent marker and write it on glass. OZB FTW!

      wouldn't a calendar reminder actually remind you, as opposed to a sticker that I would ignore anyway??

      Qld transport sends me an email I think, which is great. I do need a reminder. But I'd be happy to do it myself.

      Every other business sends out invoices. I don't get why rego renewal isn't like that.

        Of course, all adults are capable of keeping on top of their bills/renewals, it's just a typical excuse that some people use when they get caught driving an unregistered car.

        I still get a physical rego notice from Qld transport via snail mail and after I pay online I get sent a physical receipt via snail mail.

      Next we'll have stickers to remind people to pay their home insurance.

    Are vehicle registration reminders not sent to the owners in NSW?

    In Vic, these are sent out about a month ahead of the due date (just like a lot of other bills that we need to pay to retain the service). I'm not sure how the shorter-term vehicle registrations are handled.

    Regardless, how often would you look at the sticker?

    •  

      Yes, NSW get reminders about 5 weeks ahead. People just throw them in the bill pile I guess.

      •  

        Mail is not 100% reliable. Letters sometimes go missing, get missed in moving house, etc.

          True but that system appeared to work for 60+ years before.

          How many people looked at their rego sticker as they walked out to the car? To some people it isn't a priority to ensure their rego is paid on time.

          We had a huge bunfight at work last year. One of the pool utes got fined for no rego as something went wrong in our processes. Fleet manager tried to pass fine onto driver. Driver said go jump, it's your job to ensure registration paid on time. I believe the firm paid the corporate rate of fine.

            @brad1-8tsi: I don't know the full history of registration systems, but ever since I can remember until a few years ago it was the law to have a sticker - didn't they have an annual badge on the number plate itself before stickers? You didn't need to look at it every day. Occasionally you'd notice it while washing your windscreen or whatever and it would be a reminder if it was close (or worse, lapsed). After a few years of no sticker, I haven't a clue what date my rego is due. I just wait for the letter (and now thankfully they have an SMS reminder too).

            Enforcement is also much easier nowadays with automated systems checking every car. Previously police would have to pull you over to check (which they rarely ever did, only sometimes at an RBT).

              @abb: NSW was only ever the sticker. Nothing on the rego plate.

              I know many people that never wash their cars or pay any attention to any aspect of the vehicle beyond driving.

              Rego isn't much different to a power bill or council rates. You just have to get your admin in order.

          Surely it's a lot more reliable at reminding you than a sticker on your car??

      •  

        They also send an sms reminder too !

      I get reminders through NSW RMS for my expiring rego.

      I get a letter several weeks before, a popup in the ServiceNSW app and several SMS/E-Mails as well.

        Yep, I get reminders as well. I get the rego papers, sms, email and app notifications. And a few days after the rego hasn’t been paid, I usually get a reminder as well in the post, email and sms warning that the vehicle is unregistered.

        There are plenty of reminders for people in NSW. (Can’t speak for ACT though.)

    Why don't people just setup direct debit?

    • +1 vote

      Direct debits simplify your life if you have plenty of money.

      I hate people helping themselves to my money though, so I'd rather pay when I get the reminder.
      Actually most reminders come too early, so I then have to forward-date my bpay.

    •  

      I'm in Vic. I set up a direct debit and they take it out on the due date. They give me plenty of notice it's going to happen. No problems with it so far.

    •  

      Because in NSW the system needs the pre-qualifiers of an e-Safety Check if >5yrs old and a Greenslip. If you haven't done those then the DD for the rego fails.

  •  

    Plenty of people not receiving their rego renewals because they have moved in last 12 months and forgotten to tell the Roads & Traffic Authority.

    Some also getting mail stolen or misdelivered by the growing number casual posties who have no idea of the postal run.

    Hence this is a great idea funded by greenslips.com.au (Not the government)
