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

  1. Download and complete the Application for Registration – PDF.
  2. Make sure you have all the required documentation.
  3. Visit a service centre and submit your application and payment.
