You will be sent a registration sticker after you pay your annual registration fee. 

The registration sticker is colour coded and contains the month and year of expiry.

You can pick up a replacement registration sticker at a DoT Driver and Vehicle Services Centre. 

How to display your registration number

Each digit of the registration number must be:

  • Black 
  • Plain block font design
  • Vertically positioned – not slanting. 
  • Clearly visible

If the vessel hull is not white, each digit should have a minimum white surround of 7 millimetres.
