Driver licences, vehicle registration renewals, boating licences, applications for birth certificates and owner-builder permits on the Tweed have now all been centralised into one location after Service NSW opened last week in Tweed Heads South.
But Richmond MP Justine Elliot has criticised the move, saying an undisclosed number of staff from the replaced motor registry office, and possibly others, will be sacked as a result.
Locals attending the office ahead of its official opening also told Echonetdaily that parking at the new facility on Rivendell Drive was a critical problem.
But NSW deputy premier Andrew Stoner said as one the first offices in the state to be opened, the new service will herald ‘a new era in customer service delivery’.
Much can also be carried out online at www.service.nsw.gov.au or by ringing the 24/7 phone service on 13 77 88.
The new centre is located at 13–17 Rivendell Drive, Tweed Heads South and is open for extended hours.
