Service NSW centres will be established at Engadine and Roselands.

They will be among 10 new centres in Sydney, announced on Tuesday by Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

Ms Berejiklian also announced four Service NSW buses would be introduced in rural NSW to cover 14 local government areas.

No indication was given in a media release on when the Engadine and Roselands centres will open.

Heathcote MP Lee Evans welcomed the selection of Engadine “after the severe disappointment of losing the RTA”.

The motor registry closed in 2016 when the Service NSW office was opened at Miranda.

Service NSW was introduced in 2013 as a “one-stop shop” for vital services such as getting a birth certificate, Seniors Card, driver licence and renewing vehicle registration.

People can also access state government t cost of living programs, such as Free Rego, Energy Switch and $100 Active Kids and Creative vouchers.

Finance Minister Victor Dominello said, “The bad old days of waiting hours to complete a simple government transaction, such as renewing your driver licence, are over”.
