Vehicle services

Buy a vehicle licence (rego), change the registered person of a vehicle, or pay road user charges (RUC) at your local PostShop.

Credit card payment is now accepted for vehicle services at NZ Post. This does incur a credit card fee.

Vehicle licensing (rego)

Buy your vehicle licence at selected local NZ Post retail outlet and you'll receive your licence label on the spot. Check if your local NZ Post retail outlet has these services by using our locator tool.

Fees are based on your vehicle type, usage and how long you choose to license.

For the current common licensing fees including petrol and non-petrol driven, taxis, rental, trailers, motorcycles, trucks, van or utility, visit the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency website
