Renew your vessel registration

Want to renew your vessel registration? It’s easy. Here’s how to renew online, in person, by phone and by post.

How to renew your boat or personal watercraft registration

Renew online

If your registration is due for renewal, you can renew the rego up to 90 days before the expiry date.

Renew online

Digital registration

Digital vessel registration is also available. You'll need the latest version of the Service NSW app as well as a Service NSW account to renew a digital registration.

Renewing in person

If you don't wish to renew online, you can renew your registration in person at any service centre without making an appointment. You will need to bring your registration renewal papers and payment for your registration fees.

Renewing by phone

To renew your rego over the phone, call our interactive voice response system on 1300 360 782 or speak to a customer service officer on 13 77 88. Have your registration renewal papers handy.

You can pay by credit (MasterCard, Visa, or American Express) or debit card. Find out how much your registration will cost.

Renewing by post

Send a cheque and your registration renewal notice to:
Agency Business Centre
Roads and Maritime Services
PO Box 21
Parkes NSW 2870

Renewing your rego early or late

Early renewal

You can renew you registration up to 90 days early.

You can renew early online, provided you have received your renewal notice. If you haven't yet received the notice, you'll need to visit a service centre to renew.

Late renewal

If your vessel registration has lapsed, you cannot drive your vessel until you have renewed the registration. Operating an unregistered vessel is an offence with heavy penalties.

If your rego has been expired for more than 90 days, you will need to renew in person, by mail or by phone. A late fee will apply. You cannot do a late renew online.

Do you need third party insurance?

While there is no requirement for owners of registered vessels to have compulsory third party insurance in NSW, we recommend you take out third party insurance as part of your comprehensive vessel insurance. Contact your insurer for information.
