When a vehicle is bought or sold privately, both the buyer and the seller are legally required to independently notify the NZ Transport Agency of the sale and acquisition. They must do this without delay.
You can notify your acquisition by completing a form at an agent of the Transport Agency, or online at: www.nzta.govt.nz/online.
You can notify your part of the sale by using the Transport Agency’s online transaction centre at www.nzta.govt.nz/online, or by mailing a prepaid form to the Transport Agency.
