The Northern Territory Government has adopted two changes to heavy vehicle registration with effect from 1 August to align the Northern Territory with other jurisdictions across Australia.
Registration labels will no longer be issued or need to be displayed, and operators will have the option to apply for national heavy vehicle number plates for their vehicles.
The changes will improve business efficiencies for owners, and more closely align the Northern Territory with jurisdictions across Australia, simplifying the process for operators across borders.
Having a National Heavy Vehicle number plate will also give operators access to a number of features not currently available in the Northern Territory.
Operators who opt to have a national heavy vehicle number plate will be able to use the Registration module on the NHVR Portal to access details of the vehicles in their registered fleet and use the NHVR Registration Checker App to check their registration status.
