The most common scam is an email saying your rego is due. It includes a button or link for you to renew online, which takes you to a fake website. That website may ask you for your payment details and your driver licence details.

Here’s how you can tell it’s not a genuine email from us:

  • Check the common signs of a phishing scam
  • Check your rego expiry date on the label in your vehicle. We send this reminder four to six weeks before your rego is due to expire. If your rego isn’t expiring soon, it’s likely to be a scam email.
