Free rego for eligible NSW drivers

Published 4th July, 2018 in Transport

The NSW Government’s Toll Relief program provides eligible drivers with free vehicle registration.

M4 and M7 Sydney

Drivers who spend $25 or more each week on tolls, or $1300 over the financial year on one tag will save up to $729 when they renew their vehicle registration online or in person at Service NSW.

During the registration renewal process, drivers need to add their licence plate number to their toll account to find out if they are eligible for free car registration.

Nearly 100,000 drivers from across NSW will benefit from the program.

Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello said the government is backdating toll spend from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018, so drivers can benefit on what they have spent on tolls over the past year.

“So far 938 free regos have been claimed and $397,000 has been given back to drivers, with the average driver saving $423,” Mr Dominello said.

“Drivers that are currently opted into the M5 Cashback Scheme will have the choice to opt out and have their M5 tolls count towards Toll Relief or remain in the M5 Cashback Scheme.”
