Takata airbag recall
Car owners should check if their vehicles are affected by faulty Takata airbags.
A large number of vehicles under recall are still required to have their faulty Takata airbags replaced. Car owners should check whether their vehicles are affected by the recall.
Affected owners should have already received notification from their vehicle manufacturer that their vehicle is under active recall for urgent repair, as required by the compulsory recall notice administered by Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

If your vehicle is listed, or you are unsure if your vehicle is fitted with a Takata Alpha airbag, contact an authorised vehicle dealership or the vehicle manufacturer as soon as possible.
The replacement airbag inflator is free, and the vehicle manufacturer must offer to arrange for your vehicle to be towed away or to send out a qualified technician (or some similar arrangement) so the owner does not have to drive it to a place of repair, to be rectified.
The recall timing is to have all affected Takata airbags replaced by 31 December 2020.
Registration refused for vehicles fitted with defective Takata airbags
Following all reasonable attempts by a manufacturer to contact a vehicle owner, vehicles with an outstanding recall notice will be referred to the Department for Infrastructure and Transport for further action.
Notification will then be issued to vehicle owners by the department giving them 30 days to provide evidence that they have had their vehicle’s defective Takata airbag replaced.
If no response is received within the 30 days, a Safety Recall Incident will be placed against the vehicle record. This will prevent registration-related transactions, including renewals and new owner registrations.
Under no circumstances will a Safety Recall Incident be lifted, unless suitable evidence is provided confirming the vehicle’s defective Takata airbag has been replaced.
More information on vehicles with Takata Alpha airbags being refused registration can be found on the following web page.

Compulsory Third Party Insurance in South Australia
You are able to choose your Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance provider.
When you receive your registration renewal notice, there is an updated section on your form. In this section, you choose from one of four CTP Insurers by ticking the box for your chosen period of registration next to the insurer's name. Each insurer's policy coverage is identical and set by the government. To help you make your choice, you are given a simple comparison of each insurer’s premium price and a Claimant Service Rating (a measurement of how people who have made a claim rate the insurer's service). Once you have chosen your insurer and ticked the box, you pay for your registration and CTP insurance in one easy transaction.
For more information please visit the CTP Insurance Regulator's website.
