Changes to heavy vehicle registration

The Motor Vehicle Registry will adopt the following changes to heavy vehicle registration from 1 August 2019.

  • Remove heavy vehicle registration labels
  • Introduce National Heavy Vehicle (NHV) number plates

These changes will align the Northern Territory with other Australian jurisdictions, improve business efficiencies for owners and registered operators, and facilitate a consistent approach to national registration arrangements for heavy vehicles.
