A rego check is a great insurance policy for the driver. It gives you information about your car's registration history.
You get information about the car's previous ownership, registration and insurance status. A rego check is the only way you can find out if the car has ever been written off.
It ensures the car you're driving is legally roadworthy. All cars on Australian roads are required to have a valid registration.
Without one, you could face expensive fines. Cars with expired registration may also have mechanical problems that endanger you, your passengers and other road users, so for safety purposes you also need a rego check to ensure your registration is up-to-date.
A rego check tells you whether the vehicle is insuredand gives you details of the CTP insurer and the policy expiry date. CTP insurance is important if you should get into an accident, as it covers you for legal liability if you cause injury or death.
It gives you peace of mind: By giving you the information you need to ensure you'll be driving a legally registered and insured vehicle, a rego check helps put you at ease that you're not being deceived by the seller - and will give you a warning if you are having the wool pulled over your eyes!
