Key info

  • Defect notices are issued to the registered operator when a vehicle is not safe or suitable to be used on a public street.
  • The defect notice includes a list of problems to be fixed, a deadline for the work to be complete, and information about how to clear the defect notice. It will also tell you if you can keep driving the vehicle before the deadline.
  • The registration of the vehicle may be suspended or cancelled if the defect notice is not cleared by the deadline. You may be fined or be prosecuted if you do not comply with a defect notice.
  • You can surrender the vehicle's number plates at Service Tasmania if you do not want to keep using the vehicle on public streets.
