Registration freeze for light and heavy vehicles
Small businesses looking to suspend activity due to the COVID-19 business downturn and trading restrictions can apply to the Registrar of Motor Vehicles to freeze their business vehicle registrations for both light and heavy vehicles.
IMPORTANT NOTE: ONCE YOU FREEZE THE REGISTRATION YOU CAN NO LONGER USE OR PARK THE VEHICLE ON A PUBLIC STREET
Registrations can be reactivated at no cost when the business restarts.
The maximum period that a registration can be frozen is 12 months.
Significantly impacted business owners can apply for the Registration freeze for light and heavy vehicles through the Registration Business Support package application form.
You will need to provide details on your business registered for tax purposes in Australia and your Australian Business Number (ABN).
Approval will be at the discretion of the Registrar of Motor Vehicles.
Application to unfreeze
It is the responsibility of the registered operator to make application to unfreeze the registration of their vehicle. Applications can be made through this form.
