Just curious, I hear a lot regarding personalised plates is people saying the post office transfers ownership, and holds the plates.

For as long as I've had plates this has been licensys. The best i can find on Google says it's always been personalised plates ltd (until last year) who sell them, so is there a historic connection to the post office that I'm unaware of?

You did used to get new license plates from the post office in the 90s, and possibly also ordered personalised plates too when they were first introduced.

mattwnz: You did used to get new license plates from the post office in the 90s, and possibly also ordered personalised plates too when they were first introduced.

 

The relationship is that they were always the agent for the government plates department (whatever it was called before it was deregulated and sold off to Licensys). 

 

NZ Post are the agent, nothing more, nothing less. (just as they used to be drivers licencing agents but are now no longer). With that said, I dont think NZ Post are LTSA/NZTA agents anymore so wont be carrying plates or driver licencing admin. (that was about a year ago, unsure if they scored it back, you would have to refer to the NZTA website for its list of agents). 

 

At the end of the day NZ Post are cousins of LTSA/NZTA  so naturally NZPOST /NZPO have always been the 'selling/front face' arm for any govt department back wanting a national presence e.g. KiwiBank.

Nah they don't have anything to do with plates at the moment.  Visited recently to swap over to personalised plates and was told I had to go to VTNZ or the AA.

NZ Post, VTNZ, AA et al are all agents for NZTA who no longer have public counters in most places. The approved agent can change from area to area but most NZ Post outlets stopped doing anything much beyond taking payments.
