that option is available :) go to ezyreg and register and then you can get an email or sms reminder that your rego is about to expire
we are fascinated by that which can destroy us...

It's worth noting that Victoria stopped accepting this as an excuse to get away with speeding fines. They've removed it in September last year.



As for getting fined for no rego, I'm not sure if the point-to-point camera photo can be used as valid evidence for it. Cops do have a high-tech plate recognition system (one of only two technological advancements in Australia) that they run to catch unregistered cars. For now, it's fingers crossed the payment got through.

Thanks Bill, I will have to go online to do this then. The other issue I have is I rely on Nina to pay all the bills, so if she forgets we receive a fine but I receive the demerit points.

It happened to me about 7 years ago I was driving my old car without registration because she forgot to pay it. A unmarked police car pulled in behind me at a hardware store and told me to pay it when I got home. he did not fine me. I did not drive it home. I instead rang Nina up who registered it online straight away. Luckily I did not have an accident because I would have been liable without insurance.

A reminder is a great idea.

Simon is right, our point to point cameras do rego checks, can get you for speeding as well as average travel times. The fine is also pretty hefty :(

That title goes to Victoria, pioneer of the mobile speed cameras. At least the cop there gave Troy a chance to rectify the problem of no rego, whereas here, we would have faced a fine of nearly the same amount as the rego itself.

So just found this today...

http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/ne ... oast+Daily

Basically he forgot his rego after moving and not updating his details, the speed camera's in the area detected his unregistered car.

Now this is for QLD but likely to happen in other states too.

So yes speed and other traffic camera's car be set up to detect number plates and if they have and issues.

This guy ended up with $3000 in fines but I do think with mobile phones and email there should be a backup, sending people a text or email and not just relying on your postal address.
