Vehicle registration

Everything you need to know about registering a vehicle in NSW.

Cars parked on the road

Flood damaged vehicles

Recent flooding has damaged many vehicles, including caravans and camper trailers.

Many of these vehicles may be assessed and declared as written-off due to a total economic loss. These vehicles may be added to the written-off vehicles register and will not be able to be re-registered for use on our roads.

Some vehicles will not be considered a total loss and won’t be entered into the register. These vehicles could be sold at auction or private sale.

We recommend you inspect any vehicle thoroughly and seek advice prior to purchase.
