Should I pay for an RTA mistake???
I went to pay the rego on my ute today.
With my pink slip and green slip in hand, I went to the counter, to try and pay for rego.
I asked the lady to print out a new rego paper (the thing with the sticker on it) as the one I received in the mail had a mistake on it.
The Year model on the rego paper says 1994. It is a 1996 model.
She informed me she could not make that correction without an inspection on the car.
I showed her the pink slip that had "1996" on it, but she would not accept this.
I told her that all the previous rego papers I have say 1996, and she would not accept this.
She then went on about the details cant "just change by themselves", and if I really did believe that my ute was a 1996 model, I would have to get a blue slip to confirm the new details.
I told her the car has always been a 1996 model car, as it was bought brand new in 1996, so why did I need a blue slip to "change car details" if there was no change in the car (just a mistake on the rego forms)
Anyways... She refused to do the rego on my car until I can provide a blue slip to prove my car is a 1996 model.
I just went through all the previous rego papers I could find (I got one for 1997, 1998 and 2000) and they all say 1996.
Should I have to pay to get a blue slip because there is 1 mistake on the rego paper??
