DriveAware IQ: Understanding Digital IQ for Safe Roads

In today's fast-paced and information-rich world, it's crucial not to overlook certain responsibilities, especially those concerning vehicle registration and insurance. Here are some important considerations:


  • Did you know that driving an unregistered vehicle can result in fines over $700?
  • Even if you've paid for insurance in full, failing to register your vehicle can render your insurance null and void.
  • Forgetting your registration payment can lead to a $700 fine for driving an uninsured vehicle, despite having insurance coverage.
  • Most importantly, if you are involved in an accident while inadvertently driving an unregistered, and thus uninsured vehicle, the financial and social consequences can be severe
  • Fines can also be imposed for driving vehicles whilst using a smartphone. It's important to understand why.

A significant increase in fines has been noted for individuals and organizations that forget to renew their vehicle registrations, as well as for other offences such as using smartphones while driving. Learn more.

As government services transition to digital platforms, accessible through websites and mobile applications, the importance of timely access to accurate information cannot be overstated. Yet, a significant number of Australians encounter difficulties in utilizing the internet and associated technologies, leading to a risk of digital exclusion and 'Information Access Disparity.' In contrast, and somewhat paradoxically, it is equally crucial to acknowledge and understand the potential hazards that smartphone technology can pose to our communities.
