All about vehicle registration and insurance

All motor vehicles that use public roads must be registered and insured at least annually.

Green slip

Before engaging the RMS in the registration process, you need to obtain a compulsory third party (CTP) green slip from an insurer. To obtain the best price for a green slip visit the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA).

Rego check – pink slip

Generally, vehicles more than five years old are required by the RMS to pass an e-safety check – also referred to as a pink slip, or rego check – before you can renew your registration. To know for sure, check your registration renewal notice, it will state it there. A safety check costs $41 (for light vehicles) and are only required in NSW. We perform authorised RMS e-safety checks at all of our service centres in NSW for light vehicles, motorcycles, trailers and caravans. Our mobile mechanics can now meet you at your home or office to complete a pink slip inspection. 

Book a safety check

Blue slip

If a vehicle has not been registered for more than three months, you must pass a more comprehensive blue slip safety check before the registration process can continue. 

For more information contact the RMS on 132 213 or find your nearest authorised unregistered vehicle inspection station (AUVIS).

Transferring registration

If you've just purchased a used vehicle in NSW, you’ll need to transfer the registration into your name within 14 days from the date of purchase to avoid any penalties. Your transfer fee is assessed by the market value or selling price, whichever is the higher. 

You can transfer your rego online, as long as the previous owner has submitted their notice of disposal within 14 days of sale.
