If the rear number plate of your vehicle is obscured by a bike rack or mobility device rack, you'll need to fit an auxiliary number plate. This is a smaller copy of the vehicle number plate and allows the plate number to be seen clearly.

Auxiliary number plates are white with black characters. You can order one online through myPlates, and have it sent by post (delivery fee applies) or collect it at a Service NSW Centre.

Note: Auxiliary number plates are not issued to trailers, caravans, motorbikes or public vehicles.

What you need

  • your contact details
  • your driver licence number or customer number (if a business)
  • your NSW plate number
  • your payment.

How to order

  1. Select the 'Order online' button.
  2. Follow the prompts to order auxiliary plates.

If you're unable to order online, call 13 77 88 or:

  1. Download and complete the form Number Plates and/or Cancellation of Registration – PDF.
  2. Lodge the form by mail, or in person at a service centre.

Note: Your plates will be delivered to your nominated mailing address or service centre in approximately 21 days.
