What happens next

All vehicles used on South Australian roads must be registered. If you use an unregistered vehicle on the road you may be committing an offence and may not be covered by a compulsory third party insurance policy.

South Australia Police can check a vehicle’s registration status instantly so it’s important that you check that the car you are driving is registered.

Heavy penalties apply for driving an unregistered vehicle and uninsured vehicle.
