Things to keep in mind :

For transactions in person at a service centre, you can pay with :
** cash (in Australian currency)
** cheque (personal, bank or agency drawn)
** money order

Boat Registration

The following vessels must be registered in NSW when used on NSW navigable waters :
** Power-driven vessels with an engine of power rating 4.0 kilowatt (kW) or more
** Any power-driven or sailing vessel 5.5 metres or longer
** Every vessel subject to a mooring licence or marina berth
** PWC.

A person must be at least 16 years of age to register a vessel in NSW. The owner of a registered vessel must ensure the registration number is displayed at all times :
** On both sides of the hull in figures at least 150mm high
** At least 100mm high if the vessel is a PWC
** Across the transom or on both sides of the hull at least 100mm high if the vessel is a sailing vessel.

The registration number must be in a contrasting colour to the hull so that they are clearly distinguished eg avoid placing black numbers on a dark coloured hull.
