    Rego on hold

    Gudday, I'm lucky enough to be headed over seas for 3 months (moto GP in Germany is part of this trip) and want to "hold" the rego on my bike.
    Please correct me if i'm wrong but it looks like it's sewn up so that I can't do anything until the current rego runs out?? How is that fair, I wont be using it for 3 months!!
    Really wish I had only got 6 months rego last time, not 12.

    Anyway, looks like the system wins again (wankers) - bleet over.

    even better if you get back after it has run out for less than 3 months as they then get to charge you back rego for the period you couldn't use the bike. I can't understand why people get annoyed about this tax

    I tried to do the same on the Transport Agency website only to find that I have suspended it for the time I will be needing it

    Putty a m/c on hold is a very straight forward process. It can be done physically at any. Any AA, VTNZ/VTNZ/NZTA rep brick and mortor establishment or online at https://www.nzta.govt.nz/vehicles/li...-rego-on-hold/ . All you need is a credit card, your drivers licence and the m/c rego number to do it online. I had 6 m/cs on hold at the same time at one point, with bikes going back as being produced in 1972. You even get mail or email reminders when the "on hold" period is about to expire.

    Nice nacro bump btw.

    While you have to wait for the rego to run out, I have been able to back date the on hold period. I can't remember the exact duration, but it was about 2 months.

    It didn't work this winter though, possibly because of allowing expired rego since the first lockdown.

    Which reminds me that I have to get 2 WoF's very soon...

    Probably three months. I've done similar in the past to get around that back payment bit. I always put a m/c on hold for the twelve months. It doesn't cost any more.
