Rego stickers still needed for boats

14 December 2011

Boat owners must continue to display registration stickers on their vessels, despite the requirement changing for motor vehicles.

The label, which is posted to the owner after registration, should be securely affixed to the boat next to the steering position and clearly visible to anyone operating the vessel.

All vessels with an engine must be registered to travel in South Australian waters, including sailing and row boats fitted with an auxiliary engine.

The requirement to display registration labels on boats is different to motor vehicles and has not changed. Earlier in the year registration stickers for motor vehicles were abolished.
