Free NHVR Registration Checker app provides registration status in any state

NHVR releases vehicle registration mobile application
The NHVR Registration Checker app is now available


A free National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) mobile application has been released to enable heavy vehicle operators and parties in the supply chain to check the registration status of their vehicles in any state.

Users can check if a vehicle is registered by entering the registration number or taking a picture of a registration plate before downloading the vehicle’s registration status.

NHVR Sal Petroccitto says the NHVR Registration Checker is useful for users to verify a vehicle’s registration before loading or getting behind the wheel.

"This is the first national rego app specific for heavy vehicles, allowing checks no matter in which state the heavy vehicle is registered," Petroccitto says.

"This is yet another step to provide uniform services across state borders."

The product description lists it as a national registration checker "to assist industry and drivers meet their pre-checks and Chain of Responsibility obligations. The registration checker application will provide anonymous public access to a subset of the NHVR National Registration database."

NHVR says this is another move towards supporting the transition to a national registration system, which began earlier this year when registration data from all Australian states, except the Northern Territory, was brought into one portal.

The scheme allows: a new national heavy vehicle plate and nationally consistent plate fee in participating states and territories; more jurisdictions removing heavy vehicle registration labels; fleet operators across all jurisdictions to set common registration expiry dates. 

"This is the first version of the app to support the data that is now utilised by the NHVR," Petroccitto says.

"It will allow operators to check registration plate numbers, registration status and expiry, year of manufacture and other vehicle details.

"We’ll continue to work with heavy vehicle operators on additional information they require in future versions."

However, NHVR notes payment or heavy vehicle registration queries should still be directed to relevant state government bodies.

The app is compatible with Android and IOS versions and can be found via the iTunes store or Google Play.

The Heavy Vehicle Confidential Reporting Line is also available from within the app.
