Introduction

The agency that manages the operations and programs of NSW roads and waterways, Roads and Maritime Services, is notified of deaths in NSW by the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. If this is yet to occur, please visit a service centre with the required documentation and we will handle everything.

    • newspaper death notice
    • letter from a solicitor or the NSW Trustee and Guardian advising that the person is deceased
    • a completed Advice of Death – PDF form together with proof of identity documentation of the deceased
