If you've moved from interstate and are now living in NSW, you need to register your vehicle in NSW. You can do this at a service centre.
Please note: If a vehicle is kept or garaged in NSW and doesn't have a NSW registration, it is considered 'unregistered'. Severe penalties apply if you drive an unregistered or uninsured vehicle.
What you need
- your proof of identity
- your business or organisation details
- proof of your registration entitlement
- evidence of pensioner or concession entitlement (if applicable)
- the original number plates
- original CTP Green Slip Insurance policy receipt (insurance must be issued for 12 months, be without number plates details and must be issued by a NSW insurance provider)
- report from an Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Station (blue slip), issued no more than 42 days prior
- compliance certificate from the Vehicle Safety Compliance Certification Scheme (if the vehicle has been modified)
- the PDF form – 'Application for Registration'.
How to apply
- Download and complete Application for Registration – PDF.
- Gather the required documentation and your old number plates.
- Visit a service centre and lodge your application.
- Blue slip reports are only valid for 42 days.
- If you'll be wanting to claim Toll Relief, you'll need to contact a NSW toll provider and set up a NSW personal toll account.
- In a few circumstances you're able to keep your old interstate number plates. It depends on the state/territory of issue, and the type of plate.
