Renew boat registration

You can renew your boat registration online.

Who is this for

Anyone who needs to renew the registration of their boat.

What you'll need

The seven digit payment number found on the registration renewal notice.

If you don’t have the payment number you can enter the following:

  • the boat registration number
  • your surname/organisation name.

Cost

Check the fees page for all motor boat registration renewal fees.

What happens next

Once the registration has been paid, you can email a copy of your receipt to a nominated email address. Alternatively, your receipt will be provided and available to print which can be used to continue to operate the boat for up to 21 days while you wait for your new registration label.

A new registration label will be posted to you within 10 working days.

If your label doesn't arrive within 21 days, telephone 13 10 84 or go to a Service SA customer service centre and check that your address has been recorded correctly. If your address is correct, a replacement will be mailed to you free of charge.

Phone

Phone Service SA on 1300 363 805 between 8.00 am and 6.00 pm Monday to Friday. The operator will ask you for the boat registration number, name of the registered owner and some boat details. This information is shown on the certificate of boat registration and on the renewal notice.

In person

Go to a Service SA customer service centre with your registration renewal notice and appropriate payment. If you do not have your renewal notice, complete an application for registration renewal of a motor boat (232.9 KB PDF).

Post

Send the completed application to the address printed on the front of the renewal notice or to:
Service SA
GPO Box 1533
Adelaide SA 5001

Cheques or money orders are to be made payable to the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.

Visitors to South Australia

If your boat is registered in another state or territory, your interstate registration will be recognised for a period of 90 days, after which you'll need to apply for South Australian registration.

Listing on the Australian Register of Ships does not satisfy the registration requirement (this registration is for vessels travelling overseas).

Contact Service SA

Online

Only send general enquiries online. Service SA will respond within three working days.

If the matter is urgent or is specifically about your current licence or registration, please phone or visit a customer service centre instead.
