This article applies to car owners whose car rego is in NSW, Rego is about to expire, and wants to operate Rego independently. Let’s check my rego!
To drive in Australia, you must have a Rego.
If the Rego expires, you cannot drive on the road, so you must check rego frequently. Once you are found by the police, you will be fined. You can only continue to drive if you renew the Rego.
Special reminder: It is better to order Rego through the formalities about a month before the expiration of the car’s Rego, because in some cases, a car inspection is required, and the time to make an appointment for a car inspection may be longer. Australian car factories are relatively busy. Then if there is a problem with the car that needs to be repaired, it will be delayed for a while.

- If not, then according to the cost of repairing the car,
The cost of repairing the car > If the value of the existing car, you can change the car directly without repairing it!
If the cost of repairing the car < the value of the existing car, you can wait for the car to be repaired before buying the Green Slip, which should be the most economical consideration!
1. eSafety Check (pink slip)
The requirements of NSW are: Small cars that are more than 5 years old need to do a Safety Check before they can renew Rego, which is subject to the requirements at the time of renewal.
