Service NSW and Roads and Maritime Services are aware of a Third Party website offering to book licence tests online. In addition to the fee charged by Roads and Maritime Services, this site charges additional fees to book a test. Customers should note that Roads and Maritime Services and Service NSW do not have any connection with other websites or services, and are limited in the assistance that can be provided if customers experience difficulties booking through Third Party websites. If you'd like to book a driver or licence test we recommend that you use the online test booking service provided by Online Services.
