If you've moved or changed your postal address, you must notify Transport for NSW within 14 days of the change. Within 7 days, they will update your vehicle registration and photo card information, as well as mail your new address labels. If you don't, you may not be able to get home delivery or pick up delivery from some locations.
In addition, if you move more than 100 km from your previous address, you should report the change to Transport for NSW. They will then cancel your current registration and issue you a new one with the updated information.
Cancellation and replacement notices must be sent by hand-delivery mail, registered post, or fax. You can also print and mail cancellation forms from their website: transportnsw.info/services/forms_cancellations.html.
Address changes that do not fall under the 100 km rule may require you to renew your registration. You should contact Transport for NSW to find out more about the process for your particular type of vehicle.

How much time do you have? Vehicle registrations and driver's licenses are two of the most typical reasons for address changes. This is a simple duty that many people miss, but every state requires you to change your address following a move, usually within thirty days. At times like these, it may be difficult to remember all of your old addresses so there are forms you can use to make the process easier.
In addition to legal requirements, there are financial incentives to changing your address. If you've been moved and don't notify any of your creditors, they have another year to try and collect on your debt. If you fail to do so, they can start the collection process with the new address.
If you're in a position where you need to tell several companies you're moving and provide them with with a new address, we recommend using online form tools. Many banks, credit card companies, and other essential services will provide you with an electronic form to fill out once you have their new address. These tools save time because you don't have to send printed copies of the forms or wait for responses.

If you don't tell anyone about your new address for two months after you move into it, some people will still write to your old address even though it isn't valid anymore. So, if you aren't using its return address or forwarding service, it's time to find a new one.
Also, be sure to follow up by calling or sending emails to make sure that all your contacts have updated their information. It's important to keep communication open with clients, vendors, and colleagues so they know what to do if they haven't heard from you yet again.
Sometimes people put off changing their address because they think it won't make any difference if someone writes to them at an old address. But, this is not true - unless you want to receive old letters and bills in addition to new ones. Also, if you are no longer living there and someone else uses your old address, they could possibly be missing out on important communications from companies and organizations that only send mail to named residents.
