Farmers urged to save time with Common Expiry Date
for Vehicle Registrations

A simpler way for farmers to manage vehicle registrations is now on offer.

In the Primary Producers SA Transport Survey of late last year, 80% of those asked showed interest in shifting vehicles to a common expiry date.

Most primary producers have multiple vehicles registered. This means constantly having to remember to register those vehicles and spending much more time and hassle than is necessary. This also increases the chance and risk of forgetting to register.

“Primary Producers SA (PPSA) are grateful to both the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and PIRSA for the work done through the partnership project to modernize transport regulations in SA and to save farmers money and reduce red tape. The promotion of the Common Expiry Date is one more initiative from this project,” said PPSA Chair Rob Kerin.

Farmers are very busy people, so any reduction in paperwork and time needed to comply with regulations is a valuable win for them.

Farmers can nominate one date for all vehicles, or split their vehicles to 2 or more dates. This should save them time and help them better manage cash flows.

An explanation and link to the form are available on Rural Connect.

Rural connect has been developed by PPSA to allow primary producers to access – for free – much of the information they need to run their business in the one place.
