Paying Rego

By 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….

What’s Your opinion?

c`, Not displaying it carries a penalty equivalent to not paying it – it’s dumb, but it’s the law.

I’m sure I’ve heard spokespeople on the radio saying that if you’ve paid but not yet received then there’ll be no penalty.

That might be down to discretion and obviously the grace period is only a couple of weeks.

But are they secure enough for finanical transactions, caf?

I know I wouldn’t use the library terminals.

Well there’s internet terminals in the Civic Library, right?

As longs as you’ve paid the rego, it shouldn’t matter that your rego sticker hasn’t arrived in time. This is what I’ve understood from literature sent to me. I am not a Lawyer.

They are trying to get everyone to use the Canberra Connect website.

I mean to say “to guarantee that my new rego stick will arrive IN TIME”, not this year!

I also work in Civic and was most inconvenienced when the Civic shopfront closed. That being said, I renewed my rego this morning at Dickson and was still at work before 9am – it opens at 8.15 and usually doesn’t take too long if you get there then.

On the internet payment front, I agree paying by internet is ocnvenient. However due to cash flow issues I found myself unable to pay with enough time to guarantee that my new rego sticker will arrive this year – hence the trip in person, that was quite pleasant.

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

No, presumably they deemed that they were unable to provide a satisfactory service, so they closed it.

Providing a satisfactory service may have involved hiring four times as many staff, and opening a massive office with tens of service counters, all to deal with a 1-2 hour peak load.

Alternatively, attempt to inform the customer that there are plenty of convenient ways to pay for your rego other than wasting your lunchtime in a queue.

Included in the latest registration renewal I received was a little pamphlet carrying the message “Did you know that you don’t have to pay for your registration renewal at a Canberra Connect Shopfront?”

This pamphlet explains that you can pay your renewal via the Internet, a post office, via BPay or over the phone.

Reading is useful.

I have no problems with using the internet to pay it. But I also find it convinient to go at lunch hour also.

Spectra 2:39 pm 04 Aug 08

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 don’t think you’re wrong. They closed the Civic Canberra Connect store on London Circuit a while ago. Stupid if you ask me…
