In an apparent backdown, the State Government will offer a full range of motor registry services, other than licence testing, from a new Service NSW shopfront in Woy Woy from early next year.
The “Woy Woy Digital Hub” will be cashless and deliver the full range of transactions that are offered through a NSW Service Centre with the exception of driver testing and knowledge services, according to Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Mr Scot McDonald. He acknowledged that common feedback about the existing kiosk was that it “did not offer EFTPOS payment and the full suite of transactions available at Service NSW”. “When the hub opens early next year, customers will be able to access more services than at the existing kiosk. “The number of services will climb from 280 to around 1000,” Mr MacDonald said. “The Digital Hub will cater to locals’ needs now and into the future, with the Hub also operating in a new shopfront location with more staff available to assist customers, rather than as a kiosk,” he said. A location for the new hub has yet to be confirmed.
