No more registration stickers

REGISTRATION stickers for light vehicles up to 4.5 tonnes as well as motorcycles and trailers will no longer be sent out with registration renewals.

The change means registration stickers will no longer need to be displayed, a Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) spokesperson said.

Customers will continue to receive registration renewal notices but from next year will no longer have to remove the old sticker and display the new one.

RMS customers whose registration is due on 1 January or after will soon receive a flyer in their registration renewal reminding them a registration sticker is no longer needed.

Vehicle owners who pay for their registration before January 1, will have already received their reminder which included a sticker.

The retirement of registration stickers will simplify the registration process for customers, significantly reduce costs for fleet operators and car rental companies and provide savings to the NSW government and the community of about $575,000 per year.

Advances in camera enforcement technology will enable NSW Police and RMS to identify unregistered vehicles.

RMS customers can check if their registration is current and the expiry date of their registration by completing a free registration check at rms.nsw.gov.au.
