Register or transfer your vehicle
If you're a Northern Territory (NT) resident, you must register your vehicle with the Motor Vehicle Registry (MVR) office.
- buying a new vehicle
- vehicles that haven't been registered in the NT for more than 12 months (otherwise you can renew your vehicle registration)
- vehicles registered with another state or country (you must do this within three months of living in the NT)
- vehicle ownership for a deceased estate.
This applies to cars, motorcycles, trailers and other vehicles.
You don't need to display registration stickers on light vehicles in the NT.
How to register
To register your vehicle for the first time, follow the steps below.
You may choose a registration period of one, three, six or 12 months.
You may be exempt from stamp duty - check the application for stamp duty exemption .
If you're not exempt, check how much you must pay using the MVR duty calculator.
