You can add, change or delete a 'courtesy name', and/or change the usage details on your rego at a service centre.

  • your business details (if the vehicle is registered under a business)
  • your vehicle registration details
  • a copy of the Certificate of Registration of Business Name as proof of identity for the business (if applicable)
