    Good to see this happening! I spent an undisclosed amount of time last weekend removing my old rego sticker... (I don't own a hair drier and isopropyl alcohol didn't help remove the glue).

    Only one problem with no rego stickers. It was a good reminder when your rego was due lol

    I'm sure they'll send the reminder a few months before hand. Otherwise we'll have to use those smart phones of ours!!

    I'm waiting on the UK MOT approach. Get the cars roadworthy checked every year, get a new sticker/label. I'm sure if the government does that, they'll get their share of the tax, more cars off roads, more sales of newer cars, more tax again...

    SSssshhh.... don't tell them I said that... it's a shitty idea.

    Victoria Govt don't want that many cars off the road. Less speeding fines!

    We've had it in WA like this for some time. It ****ing sucks because when rego comes along it's a big awful surprise.

    Really, I've never been surprised by my Rego arriving in the mail

    Nor have a deliberately gone to my rego sticker as reference

    Guess we'll all just have to remember, like we have to pay for insurance every year

    Welcome to NSW.
    And as someone who used to do rego inspections, its a bloody good idea. Will get a lot of crap off the road, or at least get them fixed and safe.
    Sure it cost $35ish every year (once your car is over 5 years old) but its a small price to pay for having someone point out how dangerous your car is to someone who more often than not has absolutely no idea how unsafe their car is.

    I personally think not having to do them on new cars is crazt. Australia is a big place, we do a lot of KM on really bad roads. Pretty easy to make a car unsafe in less than 5 years. Especially when as i said before, people have very little knowledge about cars and most wouldn't even know when their tyres are bald

    I think in Vic they reduced the licensing and limited the amount of people that can legally perform a roadworthy, to prevent dodgy roadworthies being given out

    If you had to do one every year, it would take all year to get your roadworthy done as there just isn't enough people

    Can we peel the buggers off now, or have to wait until next year?

    It's all about speed in Vic, not quality roads, not skilled drivers, not safe cars.... just income.

    The marketing on TV at the moment is how speed cameras cut crashes at intersections..... I agree with that, and wholly support it, but I'm confused as to why we need more speed cameras on freeways where congestion is out of control.

    Sorry, slightly off topic :-)

    Canberra used to be like that 20 something years ago, I used to tremble having to go to the government testing station every year and have no less than 5 different people going over your car then they went the other direction where u only get car inspected when selling a car over 5 years old.
    potentially u could own a car for 20years and never need to get inspected.

    Have you seen some of the "roadworthy" shitboxes driving on Victorian roads? This is the exact reason.
