Less loopholes for motorists

NSW drivers will now have the option of a 10-year licence and extended validity of pink slips, under state government changes. 

Roads Minister Duncan Gay said the changes will make it easier and less costly for car owners.

From the end of the year pink slips will be valid for six months rather than six weeks, and by the first quarter of next year, customers between the ages of 21 and 44, will have the option of a 10-year driver licence.

Currently all light vehicles, more than five years old require a pink slip in order to renew their registration.

The change won’t affect registration requirements for light vehicles.
