Garage Address

All registered vehicles now require a garage address which must be Tasmanian. The garage address may be different from the registered operator's residential address and cannot be a post office box address. The garage address is unique to each vehicle and different criteria apply for light and heavy vehicles.

Light vehicles

The garage address is: the place where the vehicle is normally kept.

Heavy vehicles

The garage address is: the principal depot or base of operations of the vehicle.

Providing evidence of your garage address

For various transactions such as registration of a motor vehicle evidence of your garage address may be required.

Changing a garage address

To change a garage address fill in the nomination of garage address form (see below) and lodge at Service Tasmania shops. Evidence of the new garage address will be required for each vehicle. Information on changing a residential or postal address is located at Changing Name and/or Address.

Note: By changing a residential or postal address the garage address will not be changed. Registered operators must specifically apply for a change in garage address for a vehicle.
