Your online services
Making your way to your local registry or service centre isn’t always convenient – so now a huge range of transactions and enquiries can be done online. And this isn’t limited to basic things like checking contact numbers or finding out about road closures – there are heaps of services available that all drivers and vehicle owners will need to use at some stage.
Renewing your rego?
You could physically go to an inspection station, get your pink slip then head over to an insurer’s office for your green slip, then take all the pieces of paper into a registry to pay over the counter. But you don’t have to. You can get an inspection at an e-Safety station that will send your pink slip directly to Roads and Maritime Services.
You can also purchase a green slip online and have it sent to Roads and Maritime. Then all you need to do is renew your rego online.
You now also have the option of taking a six month rego period – which can be really handy to help with budgeting. This option may help if your rego falls at a bad time of year, or if it would be easier to pay in two instalments.
Travel on toll roads?
You can sign up for an E-Toll account, set up a temporary pass or pay your toll notices using myE-Toll. You can also check your eligibility for the M5 cash back scheme. While you’re at it, check out live traffic cameras to see how busy major Sydney and regional roads are, in real-time.
Getting your licence?
If you are in the process of getting your licence you can download handbooks and guides to help you along. You can also book your test online and check out what you can do to prepare. There’s also loads of community education information like posters and brochures available to download.
Want to jazz up your car, truck, bike or trailer?
If you’re keen on a new set of number plates, jump onto the myPlates website and check out the full range of styles and options available. You can also check availability and dummy up a plate design.
What about a bit of info exchange?
Using online services you can update your residential and mailing addresses, check how many demerit points you have and get a copy of your driving record. If you are buying or selling a vehicle you can also run a registration and histrory check on a potential new car purchase, or submit a notice of disposal.
Worried about online security?
The website uses SSL encryption to help secure information as it travels between your computer and our servers. SSL is the industry standard for security and it’s taken really seriously, so you can feel confident to do these sensitive transactions online.
If you are planning a trip, getting your licence, registering a vehicle or after information – check out the website. You may be surprised.
