Does anyone know if a Post Shop still does "instant printing" of a renewed registration?

Yes they do:

Pay your registration at your local PostShop and you’ll receive your licence label on the spot.

Actually, I may have taken this wrong

 

 

 

Do you want a REPRINT and or 'its in the mail I want it sooner'. Or actually pay and do so.

 

As both are provided but the cost differs greatly :)

Ive done a replacement of it at a post shop. They want to know on the form what happened to the one you got when doing it online, so I just put lost. Wasnt going to put that it was in the passanger footwell of the car and it was too cold and dark to find it and I was wanting to park on the road somewhere.

Just an annual renewal ... I see on the form that it's $3.74 when doing it online, otherwise $6.43 at an agent.

 

Ta, all.

Given that it's a government tax/levy/fee - how the F&%% have we let government - our servants - add a fee to cover their normal cost of collecting a fee then add GST to the lot?

 

Ticketek bureaucracy.

What - the tax on the tax thing?

 

Over the past 30 years - I adjusted to that con.

 

The fee - plus tax - for making payment of the fee - which is actually a tax, which is then also taxed...

 

IMO - charging a fee for making a payment - it should be illegal.

The fee will be to cover printing and postage etc for the label, paying a Government agency you are either going to pay it as a fee or pay it as taxation.

Replacement motor vehicle licence label - $4.11.

 

You don't have to display a current motor vehicle licence label if you've done it online before the expiry of the last one and it hasn't arrived yet, for up to 7 days.

In these days where the taxpayer has forked out hundreds of millions of dollars for computer systems which enable the police etc to use automated number plate recognition systems telling them instantly as cars drive by, whether the cars have a valid registration and WOF, it's absurd that you have to display anything at all - apart from number plates.  Even anybody walking down the street with a cellphone can lookup for free on carjam etc details about any vehicle.

 

Printing labels is a waste of ink, synthetic paper label, time, and money for the motorist.  Then those stupid sleeve/pockets on the windscreen. Has been abandoned in some places overseas.

Some of those systems don't update in real time. Or even if they can, my understanding is that the ability to do offline transactions is built into the system. So an Internet connection outage won't stop new WOF or rego labels from being issued.

My understanding is that the law related to WOF and rego offences is worded saying - failure to display a valid WOF etc label. So a law change would be required to issue fines solely based on what a database somewhere says. Unlike now where a police officer has to look at your labels before writing out a fine.

They don't use ANPR for that and if they did I suspect the capital and maintenance costs for large scale national deployment would far outweight a bit of ink and paper and some administration time. They're very limited on what they can use ANPR for, and rightly so - I don't wish to live in any more of a Police State. The vehicle has to be flagged as a "vehicle of interest" linked to a "person of interest". Information is not live.

 

See some OIA requests at http://www.fyi.org.nz and the ANPR Manual released under one of them.
