Forgetting or losing vehicle registration paperwork is now a thing of the past, with the NSW Government launching a fully digitised, paperless rego service.
The new Digital Vehicle Registration service is a one-stop shop for drivers, offering digital renewal notifications and a Certificate of Registration all in one place.
Through the new service, motorists can opt-in to get electronic reminder notices and access their digital Certificate of Registration through their MyServiceNSW Account. Customers who opt-in will receive reminder notifications six and two weeks before their registration expires and one day after via email, in their MyServiceNSW account and by push notifications in the Service NSW app.
This service has been piloted using more than 1000 vehicles to great success. Although you can already renew your rego online, this additional option makes life easier for drivers by providing them with more information in the palm of their hand.
My message to drivers in our community is simple – give the new service a go and reap the rewards. The service is optional meaning customers will continue to receive a paper renewal notice unless they opt-in.

MORE COVID SUPPORT
NSW continues to lead the way through the COVID-19 recovery, and we’ll continue our record support so that more businesses re-open, jobs are filled and communities are buzzing again.
A raft of temporary regulatory measures introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have now been made permanent, in a move that will provide $2.4 billion of net economic benefits over the next decade.
Originally set to expire from March 2022, the temporary changes made permanent include:
More flexibility for strata owners’ corporations, community land associations and incorporated associations to meet and vote electronically;
Allowing planning panels and the Independent Planning Commission to hold public hearings and meetings online or in person;
Greater flexibility for employees and businesses to access long service leave under the Long Service Leave Act 1955; and
Allowing audio link or audio-visual link to conduct interviews and questioning remotely.
These changes, combined with the resilience, creativity and determination of our people and businesses, mean that our State will be in a better and stronger position to recover and flourish.
Small businesses hit hardest by the Omicron wave have also been handed a further lifeline, with the Small Business Support Program extended to a new closing date of 29 April 2022.
The financial support package has assisted businesses, workers and the performing arts across NSW with cash flow and to continue trading. The four-week extension will allow more businesses to apply, and takes into account potential application delays for businesses from flood-affected areas.
The Small Business Support Program provides eligible businesses a lump sum payment of 20 per cent of weekly payroll with a minimum payment of $500 per week and a maximum payment of $5,000 per week. Businesses with an annual turnover of between $75,000 and $50 million that experienced a decline in turnover of at least 40 per cent in January 2022 and the start of February 2022 are eligible.
