Frustrated boaties will no longer be troubled by faded and peeling boat registration stickers come 1 October this year.

The Palaszczuk Government has called time on requirements for vessels to carry registration stickers.

Acting Transport and Main Roads Minister Steven Miles said it made sense to end the need for boat rego labels after the stickers for cars were phased out in 2014.

“Boat registration stickers peel and fade because they are constantly exposed to the harsh weather and there are still offences associated with not having one properly displayed,” Mr Miles said.

“That doesn’t make sense really and boaties have called for us to get rid of them, so we are.”

Mr Miles said Maritime Safety Queensland, Queensland Police Service and compliance partners would continue to enforce registration of vessels through the vessel registration numbers on the hull.

“We’re getting rid of stickers but not registration requirements,” Mr Miles said.

“Boat owners will still need to ensure their vessel is registered and registration renewal notices will be sent to them as usual before the due date.”

Transport and Main Roads will continue to provide boaties with registration information and tools to remind them of their registration expiry/due date.

Boaties can sign up to receive email reminders for their boat registration at https://www.service.transport.qld.gov.au/ecorrespondencepreferences.

You can also check if your boat’s rego is current at www.qld.gov.au/checkrego or by downloading the Qld Rego Check App.
