The rules

There are checks and rules in place to keep every vehicle on the road as safe as possible and ensure vehicles are registered.

Vehicles are unregistered when their registration expires, is cancelled or suspended.

Unregistered vehicles are unlikely to be covered by compulsory third party insurance (CTP). You may be liable for compensation of any person injured in an accident involving an unregistered vehicle.
