When you buy a new car, motor dealers will often organise the registration for you. If this isn't the case, you can register the vehicle yourself at a service centre.
If there's no record of you at Transport for NSW (TfNSW), you'll need to set up your customer number or driver licence number first.
What you need
- your proof of identity
- proof of registration entitlement
- original report from an Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Station (AUVIS) – blue slip
- original Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance policy receipt:
- issued by a NSW insurance provider for 12 months
- without the number plate details
- weighbridge ticket (only required where TfNSW-issued Road Vehicle Descriptors (RVDs) or vehicle specification sheet not available)
- a compliance certificate from the Vehicle Safety Compliance Certification Scheme (VSCCS) (if the vehicle has been modified)
- your payment
- your concession details (if applicable)
- the PDF form – 'Application for Registration'.
How to apply
- Download and complete the Application for Registration – PDF.
- Make sure you have all the required documentation.
- Visit a service centre and submit your application and payment.
