If you need to register a public or heavy vehicle (re-establish without HVIS inspection), you can do this at a service centre.

An HVIS inspection is conducted on most classes of NSW registered heavy vehicles. If registration has lapsed on a public or heavy vehicle, the registration needs to be renewed within 3 months of the cancellation or expiry date.

The HVIS inspection must be conducted within 28 days of the re-establish date.

  • your proof of identity
  • your business details (if vehicle registered under business)

  • proof of previous registration (for example, registration papers in the same registered operator's name)
  • a completed HVAIS or AIS inspection report (signed and dated within the last 28 days)
  • evidence of compulsory third party (green slip) insurance
