Car rego due again?

Is it time for that dreaded annual car registration bill? If you forgot about it again and now don’t know what you’re going to do, don’t stress too much. Nifty Loans has a great solution for you – car registration loans!

We all know that owning and running a car can be one of the most costly household expenses. Heaven forbid if your home regularly uses 2 cars! You have to account for all those weekly fuel expenses, quarterly services, insurance, general maintenance costs and new tyres – to name just a few. As we all know, these expenses can really add up, costing well into the hundreds, if not thousands of dollars!

Then on top of all these costs, we also have to think about that pesky annual car registration expense. Renewing a rego generally costs around $800 for the average car! With all these costs in mind, it’s super easy to see how that upcoming rego cost can sneak up on you.

Have these car-related expenses started getting you down? Do you need a bit of a helping hand? Nifty Loans has your back!

Here's a Nifty question!

Do you know when your rego is due next?

How do I apply online?

Here at Nifty Loans you can pop an application completely online. We promise it’ll be a quick and painless process! You can hit the APPLY NOW button on the top of the page to go straight to an application!

Once we have received your application we aim to have an outcome for you within 60-minutes, if we receive your application during normal business hours. If you apply outside of business hours, we’ll get to your application first thing next business morning!

Do you do credit checks for car registration loans?

Yes, we do. While we do perform credit checks when you apply for a car rego loan with us, don’t let that deter you. We take a lot more into consideration than just your credit score and we always follow strict lending guidelines. Having a bad credit score doesn’t immediately discount you from being eligible for a car registration loan. Here at Nifty Loans, we understand that not everyone is going to have a perfect credit history and believe that everyone should be given a fair go, regardless of their history.

We understand that sometimes unexpected things can (and do) happen and we think you shouldn’t be penalised for that. So, if you’re credit history isn’t the greatest, don’t worry! We’ll also take into consideration a bunch of other factors such as your current financial circumstances and your recent banking history to gain a thorough overview of each of our clients’ ability to repay any potential loan product.

We always adhere to all responsible lending guidelines and relevant legislation to ensure that our loan products are right for our clients. If we believe that a loan product is not right for a client we won’t approve it. It’s that simple. We’re here to help you, not hinder you with a loan that you cannot repay.

What are the costs involved?

At Nifty Loans, we never try to hide our costs from our customers. That’s why when you’re approved for a loan, you’ll receive a loan contract that will outline all the fees and charges attached to your loan. In the mean time, we can provide you with an idea of what your Nifty loan may cost. For each of the loan types below, you can find basic examples of our loan costs at the bottom of the page.

Loan TypeLoan AmountSecurity
Small Personal Loansfrom $300 to $2,000Unsecured loans
Medium Personal Loansfrom $2,001 to $4,600Security Optional
Large Personal Loansfrom $5,000 to $10,000Secured personal loans

Other fees and charges may be payable. You may be charged additional fees if you miss a repayment or default on your loan contract. If you have any further questions about what fees and charges are associated with your loan, please do not hesitate to get in contact with our friendly team of loan experts.

Do you do car registration loans for bad credit?

Yes, absolutely! All of our Nifty registration loan applications are assessed on an individual basis using our responsible lending guidelines. This helps us ensure that we are offering responsible loan products to our clients

We understand that sometimes life can throw you a curveball and you shouldn’t be penalized over that forever.

Here at Nifty we are willing to look beyond your past credit history and consider a positive step toward financial stability with Nifty online car registration loans.

Can I apply online if I am on Centrelink payments?

Yes definitely! If you are receiving a regular Centrelink benefit into a personal bank account, you could still be eligible to apply for one of our car registration loans! Just chuck an application in online and we’ll aim to get you an outcome within 60-minutes (if you apply during business hours).

We encourage anyone to apply and we’re happy to take a look at your application for you.

If you have any questions at all, or are unsure whether you qualify or not, don’t hesitate to give our friendly customer service stars a call or email. They are happy to discuss any questions or queries you may have and enlighten you on all aspects of Nifty Loans!

What other car-related expenses do we offer loans for?

Not only do we offer car registration loans, but we can also help out with a bunch of other car-related costs! There are a host of other car-related expenses that can creep up on you and take you unawares.

See our list of examples of other expenses that were happy to lend a helping hand with:

  • CTP insurance (also known as green slip insurance). You can expect to pay upwards of $300 for CTP insurance, and as its compulsory insurance in Australia, there’s no way you can avoid this cost;
  • Other car insurances. There are a number of different insurance plans you can opt for, in addition to the compulsory CTP insurance;
  • Car repairs and maintenance. We’re happy to help you get your car back into peak running condition, so you can continue zipping through life getting things done.

Here's a Nifty fact!

In Australia, car registration costs vary from state to state

How are car registration costs calculated and how do they vary by state?

Wondering how registration fees are made up of and how they vary throughout the country? Let’s take a look!  Vehicle registration is usually made up of 3 components:

  1. Vehicle Registration Fee: This provides essential funding for transport infrastructure and maintenance. 
  2. Traffic Improvement Fee: This is a non-refundable fee collected by the department of transport and main roads and for construction and maintenance of the state’s road network. 
  3. Insurance: Each state has its own version of basic level third party insurance. If a person causes injury to someone else in a motor vehicle accident, this insurance protects the vehicle owners and drivers from being held financially responsible. This doesn’t cover the cost of damage to someone else’s car or property. 

As reported on the Queensland Government’s website, the following explains how each state calculates their registration fees and examples. You can also view more information here 

Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania currently charge according to the number of cylinders a vehicle has. The larger the number of cylinders, the higher the fee. These are grouped into main cylinder groups, 2, 4, 6 and 8. 

Victoria charges a flat fee for all light vehicles, although the fee is determined by the location the vehicle is kept, i.e. metropolitan area, outer metro and rural. The further out from the city, the lower the fee. This is because the city is considered a high risk area whereas a rural area is considered low risk. 

New South Wales, Western Australia and the Australian Capital Territory’s fees are based on the individual vehicle’s tare weight. 

The Northern Territory bases their registration fees on engine capacity. 

Below, we have provided some cost examples as shown on the Queensland Government website. This compares full registration cost including CTP insurance between states and territories. These examples are based on a 4 cylinder, 1,275kg tare weight vehicle per state for 12 months as of October 2019*

  • QLD –  $745.10
  • NSW – $905.38
  • VIC –   $834.80
  • NT –    $762.10
  • SA –    $714.04
  • WA –   $768.47
  • TAS –  $589.52
  • ACT –  $1,000.80

*These fees are examples only and are accurate as of the date shown and costs would have changed per state since. 

In some states, if a vehicle is over 5 years old, it may require a yearly mandatory safety inspection before it can be registered. If the vehicle requires this check, the costs associated on top of the registration fee will be higher than shown here.

So how do I repay my car registration loans if I am approved?

We make it super easy for you!

We set you up with an easy direct debit repayment that will be deducted from your bank account on a nominated day for the term of your cash advance loan. It’s as simple as that! We often set this repayment up in line with your payday and then the system does its thing. Your repayment comes out automatically so you don’t have to worry about transferring the money manually. We do it all for you to make it as simple and easy as possible.

If you want some idea of what your repayments will be like, pop up to the top of this page and have a look at our handy online loan calculator. Simply use the sliders to indicate how much you would like to borrow, for how long and how often you would like to make repayments.

Once your loan has been fully repaid your direct debits will automatically stop so you won’t have to do anything further. Now that’s Nifty.

Our responsible lending policy

We take our responsible lending obligations seriously at Nifty Loans. We set our lending policies and criteria up to ensure that we will never approve you for an unsuitable loan and never lend you more than you can afford to repay.

That is why we ask for 90-days of current bank statements. Having your most recent 90 days of statements allows our talented Assessment Team to assess you to make sure that a Nifty Loan is right for you.

So, if you’re like us and need your car to get from A to B and you need a little bit of help with those car registration costs, don’t hesitate to apply with Nifty Loans. We know just how expensive it is to keep your car on the road and we’re here to help.
