Can I get a car registration loan with bad credit?

Nifty Loans is an online lender. This means that, unlike traditional lenders, we can be more lenient in our credit requirements. We will conduct a thorough financial analysis, including a credit check and assessment of your bank statements, to ensure that a personal loan is affordable for you. If we determine that you can manage your loan, we may be able to offer you a bad credit personal loan.

While we may be able to offer you a loan with bad credit, every application is subject to a thorough assessment. We adhere to the responsible lending guidelines set by ASIC and will never lend an applicant money if we believe they cannot afford to repay their loan.


How much can I borrow with my car registration loan?

You can borrow for any amount from $2,100 to $15,000 to cover your car registration expense. We will assess your affordability and offer you a loan amount to suit you.

How do I repay my loan?

We will set up a direct debit in line with your pay cycle. In this way, as soon as you are paid, your loan repayment will be deducted from your bank account. When your loan has been repaid, we will stop your loan payments.

Can I repay my loan early?

We do not charge early exit fees on our personal loans. If you can repay your loan early, you are free to do so with no additional costs added to your loan. This could save you money on interest or monthly fees.

How are car registration costs calculated?

Vehicle registration is usually made up of 3 components:

  • Vehicle Registration Fee: This provides essential funding for transport infrastructure and maintenance.
  • Traffic Improvement Fee: This is a non-refundable fee collected by the Department of Transport and Main Roads for the construction and maintenance of the state’s road network.
  • 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 the other person’s car or property.

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.
