Paying Rego

AussieGal83 4 August 2008 35

I could be wrong about this, but is there anywhere in the City (and I dont mean Braddon/Dickson) where you can pay your car rego?

There is a Canberra Connect in the Civic Library, but you can’t pay rego there. They make you go to Dickson.

I find this completely ludicrous that there is no where in the City where you can pay your rego.

I’m happy to be corrected though if this is incorrect….

>But are they secure enough for financial transactions, caf?

Yes, They are more likely safer than your home computer. They are less likely to have any spy wear dude to the restrictions on them. After that it is the websites security you have to worry about and that is going to be the same no matter which computer you access it from.

Personally I just pay online and get my sticker in the post.
Ditto. I haven’t paid a bill “offline” in years. Can’t imagine why anyone with decent internet access would do otherwise (though I’d be fascinated to hear good reasons).

I am happy to pay nearly every bill on line, heck I wish they would all do online statements. Rego though I prefer to pay in person. I like to know that once I pay I have the rego in my hand and it will make it to my car, not end up blowing down the street or in the bin somewhere because it managed to make it’s way out of my letterbox for some mysterious reason (if it makes it to the letterbox in the first place)

they closed the city office because it was stoopid busy during lunch time with really long wait times, and dead for the rest of the day.

It was heavily used – so they closed it? Righto.

I’m glad someone understood the point I was making without having to spell it out for the special children.

Cost out weighed the benefit of keeping the civic branch open so they closed it

yep, so now the staff sit around and chat because they have nothing much to do all day except tell the ones that come in to pay their rego that they have to go to Dickson.

I think renewing ACT rego is brilliant. I used to do it from the US the week before I came home! Could do it via BPay, or on their website, or by phone, or by mail. Very easy and convenient.

I can’t pay one of my cars over the net or phone cos it runs on LPG and I need the gas inspection certificate sighted.

I suppose I could mail it off to the rego mob in Dickson and transact via post, but I usually just transact in the Tuggeranong shopfront. Never takes more than 10 minutes from arriving to leaving.

Well said Proud Local,

Is it that hard that we can’t put a sticker on.

Nowaday’s they peel off soooo easy that there is no excuse.

That’s what a cop told me.

And he was right. I’m not THAT bust that I can’t make the time.

Police waste time pulling cars over because they have expired stickers, then radio checks show it is registered.

Time could have been spent catching a real traffic criminal ie mobile phone…(i hate them)

You can now pay concession rego over the phone AS LONG as the person calling is (or says they are) the concession holder. They have some electronic link that confirms with the Centrelink computers that the concession is still current. Makes me very happy as renewing rego was about the only thing I had to go and stand in line for.

Proud Local Proud Local 5:06 pm 04 Aug 08

Yep, the cops do a quick radio check to make sure its registered and if it is and you are still waiting for the sticker to arrive then there is no problem. Same if you have got the receipt number. If you have been lazy and have the sticker in the glove box, expect to be made to get it out and stick it on the spot whilst the cops watch.

Lying and then rushing home and paying it the same night does not work though, records indicate the exact date and TIME you paid for your rego……

If your rego bill has a barcode with the Australia Post symbol, you can pay it at the post office. I don’t think you can pay for gas cars there as they need to be inspected, or concession because they need to sight your concession at the RTA. Either way, you simply won’t have a barcode on your bill.

You can pay on the expiry date if you want to, you will be considered registered if your payment has been approved.

Cost out weighed the benefit of keeping the civic branch open so they closed it, and hose concerned with Credit Card payments can always use Bpay but keep in mind it takes a couple of days for payments to clear.

They should adopt the NSW system whereby you pay online, but don’t need to wait for a new sticker to arrive.

Also, Mrs Berlina was once breath tested and I had forgot to put the sticker on the car (although it was paid up), and the cops did a quick check, reminded her to put the sticker on (in a friendly manner), and let her go. Of course, she blamed me, which probably helped.

er… unauthorised, that is. Point is, in the credit card system its the merchants that carry the risk.

Skid: I’m pretty comfortable using a credit card – just a call to the bank and they’ll issue a charge-back on any authorised transactions.

The same goes for carrying your licence while driving – they *can* let you go once they verify you own a valid licence. Police ‘discretion’ is deliberately gray. And easily fallen foul of.

C` you are correct you are given enough lee-way to get the sticker. It happened to me, got pulled over explained the situation, I even printed off the on-line recept and showed them that, they radioed it in and waited for confirmation that I was registered and let me go with a smile.

Spectra Spectra 3:56 pm 04 Aug 08

I’ve also heard the same thing. An associate of mine was pulled over and explained to the cops that she’d paid for her rego but hadn’t got the new sticker yet. She reckons they were happy to let it slide…once they checked with the rego office. Which was unfortunate for her, since she was actually lying. Let that be a lesson…of some sort.
