Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is urging residents in Yetman, Bingara, Mungindi and Boggabilla to take advantage of visits by the Mobile Service NSW Centre in the coming fortnight.

RESIDENTS in Yetman, Bingara, Mungindi and Boggabilla will have easier access to NSW Government services and business transactions when Service NSW’s new Mobile Service Centre visits the four rural communities next month.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said the custom-fitted Service NSW bus would be making its way across the region, starting next week with a trip to Yetman and Bingara and further afield to Mungindi and Boggabilla in the following week.
“It’s not possible for every single community across country NSW to have access to a physical Service NSW Centre, where people can walk in and undertake their Driver Knowledge Tests, pay bills, or renew a licence,” Mr Marshall said.
“I’m incredibly supportive of these buses coming to our region and bringing these important services and opportunities to our smaller communities, saving locals time and money.
“I urge local residents to take advantage of these visits and talk to the helpful staff.”
Since 2013, Service NSW has become a one-stop-shop for vital services such as getting a birth certificate, a Seniors Card, driver licence and vehicle registration.
“Service NSW is also a gateway to household savings and can help people access important cost of living programs, such as Energy Switch, $100 Active Kids and Creative vouchers and cheaper Green Slips,” Mr Marshall said.
Armidale, Inverell and Glen Innes have Service NSW Centres with Moree to have one before the end of the year.
“The Mobile Service NSW Centre will roll through towns with advanced notice so the community knows when to expect a visit and what documentation is required to perform their transaction,” Mr Marshall said.
“The Mobile Service Centre will be cashless, with payment options including cheque, EFTPOS or credit card.”
