Due to financial constraints I only have the option of paying for registration on pay day. This is 4 days outside of the ACT clause “Please allow 7 working days for the delivery of your registration label” warning. I gather it will be unlikely that the registration label will arrive within the those 4 days days – 2 days of which is obviously weekends. Which leaves a few potential days where I am legally registered, however not displaying the appropriate sticker. Which is almost a $100 fine.
This contrasts with the 2 other states that I have lived in where-by they send you the actual registration sticker. You then pay the required amount at which point you already have the “required by law” labeling to put on your newly re-registered vehicle. I’m not shocked that ACT is behind the other states I have lived in. But was just wondering if there is some exception that could be raised regarding withholding of goods – i.e the sticker. I have paid for it but they cannot supply the label over the counter like thay can with a licence renewal – precedence? (Correct me if I’m wrong re: the “cannot get it over the counter” as I could not find anything regarding that from the renewal letter).
Anyways. Troll on… 😉
