    car registration on hold

    hey all....

    sorry if in wrong selection.

    does any one know about putting a car's rego on hold ?? is there a time limit or time frame? so if a person is out of new zealand can he put it on hold till he's back ? and what after he's back.

    if so, how?

    many thanks in advance.
    cheers guys

    its effectively like hitting pause on your rego, so it goes back to whatever state it was before you put it on hold.. just delayed 3 months

    And you can still register the car at any time during the hold period.

    if the rego expires in that time its on hold you need to re license it before you can drive it again.

    Re: car registration on hold

    Mostly correct. The form is an mr24, and the minimum hold period is 3 months. If you register it before those 3 months are up, you are charged back to the day you put it on hold. The registered owner does not have to do it, but you need the correct details. Time period an be 3-12 months (not just 3/6/9/12)

    If its parked on the road, you can and probably will get a ticket.

    Re: car registration on hold

    Perfect I need to know something too.

    If i buy a car within the hold period and put said vehicle into my name the previous owner should not pay anything unless they had outstanding rego before it went on hold.? This is what it says on website and I am buying a car in this state and may have interpreted it wrong.

    If you relicense your vehicle during the first three months of the exemption period (the minimum exemption period is three months), we'll backdate your new licence to the expiry date of your original licence, exemption or change in registered person – whichever is most recent.

    and when the exemption expires and you renew the rego - you only get backdated to the exemption expirey (if applicable).

    If the rego was expired before it went on hold, the owner would have had to pay the backdated rego fees (from the date of the exemtion application back to the rego expiry date).

    If you relicense your vehicle during the first three months of the exemption period (the minimum exemption period is three months), we'll backdate your new licence to the expiry date of your original licence, exemption or change in registered person – whichever is most recent.
    Now what this is saying is that if the vehicle is registered, you will have to pay any backdated fees - either back to the Rego expiry, back to the start of the exemption or to the date the registered person was changed - BUT its what ever one is the most recent (which in your case will be back to the date the registered person was changed).

    So I read that as if "registration was on hold for the first time for 3 months and had no money owing as soon as I purchase it I just pay as of that date.
    But previous will not have to pay the period the car was on hold (unused) as it reverts to date of change in ownership as being the most recent? Does that make sense? sometimes I think too much

    Re: car registration on hold

    Also I found out the hard way, when it's taken off exemption after 3 months you have to pay a minimum of 3 months rego to use it. I wanted to register it for a month to get it off hold so I could sell it but had to pay 3 months.
    Please remember when you're driving, don't floor it, 104 it

    i
    Yeah you just sell it. As I understand the hold passes to new owner and you are clear as long as paper trail shows your not the owner now and car has a WOF they just pay as of that change of ownership date. The time between being on hold and the new registration is seen as "nothing" as the car was not used.

    Not that I can get that through to this owner

    The way I see it, after 3 months, the rego will work as normal again, so if you dont buy a REGO straight away, then when you do, you will have to pay from the end date of the so called "hold date"

    What Im wondering is, what happens, if you put your car on hold for say 6 months or a year, and then you register after 3 months? (As stated above, if you register before 3 months, you have to pay back to when you put the vehicle on hold, but what happens if you want a rego after 3 months and a couple of days? You pay to the date you register?

    Suppose you put it on hold for 12 months, but then take it off hold after 4 months, then rego starts the day you pay it...

    first you will have to pay back dated rego from when you want to put the rego on hold to the day it expired. then you pay for your 3 months worth of it being on hold.
    you must apply for an exemption while your licence is still current. The exemption will take effect from when the current licence or existing exemption expires.
    you cant put a rego on hold if its got time already owing on it. you can only put it on hold from when its about to expire

    you may get refunded what you didnt use, then pay the for a new rego. (as putting a rego on hold is F all anyways so you may or may not get something back)

    you cant hold both a rego and one that is on hold at the same time for the same vehicle.

    Re: car registration on hold

    Im selling my motorbike which has had its rego on hold for about 2 months now. When the change of ownership is done, am I going to have to back pay for the 2 months its been on hold for?

    Re: car registration on hold

    From my understanding no. Depending on how long it has left for rego it will cost whoevers name it is under at the time of that person decides to renew the rego. I.e if you put it on hold for 4 months and its only done 2 months, then if you put rego on it prior to that expiry you pay from the date it was put on hold. If you sell it during that time, the new owner pays as long as its in their name. They wont have to pay if they wait out the hold till its expiry, then they pay from that date onwards.

    i think... lol

    Re: car registration on hold

    I would have thought you'd just pay from the present day? I.e. if you keep it under your name, and go into the shop to get it taken off hold, then your new rego starts from the time you pay. No different if it changes ownership, there shouldn't be a need to backpay, that defeats the purpose of putting rego on hold.
