    Question Putting rego on hold?

    Just wondering, is there a minimum or maximum period of time that you can put your bikes rego on hold for?

    minimum of three months,max of a year at a time, can keep puting it on hold for another year at a time,if needed.
    I know you used to be able to do it for 5years at a time don't think you can now tho.

    Just remember if you put it on hold for say 6 mths then decide you want to get back on the road after only 5 mths you would have to pay the 6 mth rego, you cant even go in the week before the 6 mths is up and renew the rego, you have to wait till the 6 mths is up. So work out how long you actually want it of the road for and take it from there. If your not sure do it in 3 mthly stages, it doesn't cost you anything.

    I suspect that you can do it all from their website.

    EDIT: Someone beat me to it

    The "three month" rule only applies if you apply for rego within the first three months of putting it on hold. In this case only, it will be backdated. Therefore you should always put a vehicle on hold for a year.
    One other tip, if you do find you need to put a vehicle back on the road within three months - you can always put the vehicle in someone elses name - in this case the new rego is NOT backdated and the existing registered owner does not have to pay either. As this costs $9 and rego can be $20 a month..........

    Or anytime up to 2 months after the VEHICLE LICENCE expires still for free.
    If it wasn't for a concise set of rules, we might have to resort to common sense!

    I always thought it was 3 months minimum, and 12 months maximum. But if you decided 2 months after putting the registration on hold that you wanted to get the registration paid and up to date that you had to pay for 3 months registration (even though it was supposed to be on hold). Once you are past the first 3 months of your registration being on hold you then only have to pay the registration fee from the end of that first 3 months onward (its not backdated to when you orginally put the registration on hold).
    My bikes registration is currently on hold. I put it on hold for 12 months at a time. (I didn't want to have to remember to get an extention every 3 months. And I knew I wouldn't be riding for a while. Which reminds me I best check when I need to extend this again). Also be aware that they can cancel your registration completely if you don't remember to extend it once the hold has expired. Mum learnt the hard way with my dads motorbike. She recieved no notice of the extention expiring, and suddenly recieved a letter stating that the bike had been deregistered.

    That's correct. Also, provided the exemption is kept current and re-exempted within the 2 months after the last exemption expiry the 3 month period is not reapplied to the new exemption.

    No - once past the first 3 months of the exemption from continuous licensing, you pay from the day you relicense - no backdating.
