Car registration renewal

Not displaying a current registration label attracts a fine of $623 in NSW therefore you will have to arrange for repairs so it can be reinspected and passed.

You can renew your registration online using myRTA. You will need to have your Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance policy (not required for trailers) and an e-safety inspection report (your Renewal Notice will indicate if one is required or not). Both are sent to Roads and Maritime Services electronically.

You can also renew it by going to any motor registry or agency, over the phone using the interactive voice response system (1300 360 782), over the phone by talking to Roads and Maritime customer service (13 22 13), or via post by sending your registration renewal and a cheque or credit card authority to Roads and Maritime Services, PO Box 21, Parkes, NSW 2870.
