Jetski registration now a speedier process

Waikato Regional Council have launched a new online tool for registering personal water craft (jet skis) being used in the Waikato region. 

The Waikato is one of a number of North Island areas that require jet ski registration, along with Auckland, Northland and Bay of Plenty. As long as a jet ski is registered with one of these authorities it will be able to operate in all four regions. Another advantage of getting a registration number is that it helps to identify jet skis if they’re stolen.

The online tool is available at and the maritime services team is available to answer questions on 0800 800 401.
