Plate collection

Custom plates take approximately 10 working days to make once approved. You can collect your plate from your nominated Service SA customer service centre or we can post your plate for an additional fee. Please bring your current registration papers and number plates as we need to allocate your new plate to your vehicle or motorcycle before you can collect them.
