Pay rego and........................that's about it. This is the reason there are so many piles of junk still on the road out here. I reckon a good 40% of the cars should be off the road and scrapped!

Thanks for that

Can you tell me how much that is and how often you have to pay it. what is entailed within that and kind of car test?

Thanks

The amount varies depending on the size of the engine. You can renew it for between 3 and 12 months, ours is around $480 for 2.0 petrol for 12 months, the renewal comes through the post and we just pay it online. This includes third party insurance but we have a seperate policy to make it fully comprehensive.

When you say car test do you mean mot? There is no such thing here, no test. You will see plenty of cars with smoke belching out the back, crabbing down the road with the front all smashed up after a collision but if it still moves it will still be driven.
