According to the NSW government website, the state government is introducing 10-year driver licences by 2015 for customers aged between 21 and 44 years.
This means motorists with a good driving record won’t have to make as many trips to a Roads and Maritime Services registry or Services NSW centre to have their licences renewed. The NSW government is also extending the validity of light vehicle safety inspection reports (or pink slips) to make life easier for car owners across the state.
Currently, all light vehicles more than five years old require a pink slip in order to renew their registration. From the end of this year, pink slips will be valid for six months rather than six weeks.
