South Australia ditches sticky registration labels
- 20 September, 2010 11:00
Sticky motor registration labels will be a thing of the past in South Australia as the state's government moves to online registration.
The change, taking affect from July 1, 2011, is one of a range of measures in the state budget designed to improve processes for motor registration and licence renewals, according to Minister for Government Enterprises, Gail Gago.
The state's 2010-11 budget includes $106.3 million over four years for police items such as hand held computers, a portable fingerprint scanning system and more automated number plate recognition mobile cameras,.
The measures include the end of registration labels and discs for light vehicles including cars, motorcycles and trailers. Police checks will be done by computer and portable electronic devices.
There will also be a rise of between $1 and $2 in administration fees for registration, licensing and number plates.
“Western Australia successfully abolished rego labels and discs in January and we’ve been advised that the transition has gone smoothly,” said Gago in a statement.
"And while sticky labels on our South Australian windscreens will also become a thing of the past, motorists will continue to receive the usual invitation to renew their registration and follow-up reminders.”
South Australia residents can check their registration through a EzyReg online facility or they can make their registration enquiry by calling a service SA telephone hotline number.
Gago said the move to tagging means savings of $5.6 million over three years, by reducing production, postage and processing of rego labels.
“SAPOL will also be provided with an additional 60 mobile data terminals for metropolitan and country police vehicles, so police across the state can more easily and quickly check registration details,” she said.
“This is in addition to the Rann Government’s election commitment to provide police with 100 more, portable, hand-held devices and associated software in a $700,000 funding package.”
