  1. Until the 15th June, the RTA are kindly offering a discount to restyle your number plate ie changing the colour but not the content. Reduced from $110.00 to just $75.00. This is a one off fee ie no recurring annual fees apply and funds raised are directed to road safety.

    Visit www.myplates.com.au and follow the steps to change the style of your plate and use promotion code 'IDEALGIFT'

  2. The RTA is a bit rich giving us a discount on something that always remains their property. Even when your rego lapses the plates are still in your name, so you can still be booked or identified by those plates, so they are still yours right? Wrong. If you go to re register your bike or car and you want the exact same plates you will need to pay them the $260 order fee so they can reorder what you already have, and then have them remade, even though there is nothing wrong with your original plates. Not to mention the extra $37 for interim plates you will need while the plates you already have are being remade. This is all on top of your registration fee. Now that is what I call a blatant cash grab by yet another Govt body,

    It looks like my local member is getting an email on Monday.
    Why don’t you do the same with your local member, it’s the only way to change things. Otherwise it’s only a matter of time before you cop something like this.
