If you opt in to Digital Vehicle Registration, you'll:

  • have immediate access to your digital Certificate of Registration in your MyServiceNSW Account
  • receive by email, in your MyServiceNSW Account and in the Service NSW app:
    • a renewal notice 6 weeks before your registration expires
    • a reminder to renew your registration:
      • 2 weeks before your registration expires 
      • one day after your registration expires
  • no longer receive a paper renewal notice in the post.


You must be:

  • the registered operator of a vehicle which can be renewed online
  • an individual (not a company).


  • Conditional registrations are excluded.
  • You’ll continue to receive a paper renewal notice for any vehicles that do not meet the eligibility criteria. 
  • If your paper renewal notice is currently being sent to a fleet manager or lease company, we'll continue to use their address for service. 

What you need

A MyServiceNSW Account.

More information

  • After you opt in, your MyServiceNSW Account will be your electronic address for service. 
  • You can access your digital Certificate of Registration in your MyServiceNSW Account under the registration details for eligible vehicles.
  • You can opt out and go back to paper delivery at anytime in your MyServiceNSW Account notification preferences. Save a copy of your Certificate of Registration for your records before you opt out. 
  • The digital Certificate of Registration does not have any forms on the back. If you sell your vehicle, let us know the buyer’s details by submitting a notice of disposal. Once this is done, the buyer can transfer the registration.
  • You do not need to show your registration details to your mechanic to do a safety inspection. They already have these details on their system and must check the vehicle itself (not the certificate) for the correct VIN or chassis number.
