Heavy vehicles: See Renewing a heavy vehicle registration for information.

All you need to do is:

1. Buy your green slip. 
Most Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurers send confirmation of payment to Roads and Maritime Services electronically.
Before you renew, you can compare green slip prices from all insurers with the green slip calculator. 

2. Get a vehicle safety check (formerly pink slip).
Your renewal notice will indicate if you need a safety check, however if you change your registration term it may impact on inspection requirements. Contact Roads and Maritime on 13 22 13 for information or see the Short term registration inspection table.

Have your vehicle inspected at any Authorised Safety Check Station; the station will send a copy of your inspection report to Roads and Maritime Services electronically.

Renewing NSW registration while interstate

If you are interstate and need to renew your NSW registration, you can post your renewal. You will need to provide:

  • Your registration renewal notice
  • Inspection report (if required). Important: Roads and Maritime will only accept an interstate inspection report if you are more than 50km from the NSW border. The report must be from either:
    • The registering authority in another state or territory (eg VicRoads, Queensland Transport etc), or
    • An inspection station approved by the interstate authority, or
    • A recognised motor industry body that is a member of the Australian Automobile Association (eg RACV, RACWA, RACQ, RAA South Australia)
  • CTP green slip, or electronic notification of CTP details received by Roads and Maritime from your insurer (not required for trailers)
  • Cheque (made out to Roads and Maritime Services) or credit card authorisation for the amount of the renewal.
