ORV Registration Helps Recover Stolen Bikes

21-Dec-2016

Most people think of Off-road Vehicle (ORV) registration as just being needed to access the designated off road vehicle areas.  But there is another benefit: traceability.  Changes to the way the Department of Transport stores the ORV registration details mean that police can access this data to locate the registered owner in the event that a bike or quad is recovered and suspected to be stolen.

The database capture engine and frame number, so even if the thieving scum who stole your bike remove the registration plate the police will still be able to trace it back to you.

For just $15 this can be a worthwhile thing to do even for MX bikes that are only use for competition, or if you only ride on private property.

Other things to know:

  • The bikes don't need to be inspected 
  • You need to provide a Statutory Declaration of ownership (it's on the registration form) 
  • Registration can be done at any licensing centre. 
  • The annual registration fee is fifteen dollars with a one-off fifteen dollar fee for numberplates the first time the vehicle is registered. 
  • All off road vehicle registrations expire on 30th of September each year. 
  • ORV registration does not include any third-party insurance

You can access the ORV Registration form here
