SERVICE NSW VISTING TABULAM, DRAKE, DEEPWATER, ASHFORD, BOGGABILLA & MUNGINDI THIS MONTH

SERVICE NSW VISTING TABULAM, DRAKE, DEEPWATER, ASHFORD, BOGGABILLA & MUNGINDI THIS MONTH

Wednesday, 4 November 2020

 

RESIDENTS in Tabulam, Drake, Deepwater, Ashford, Boggabilla and Mungindi will have easier access to NSW Government services and business transactions when Service NSW’s Mobile Service Centre visits the rural communities later this month.

 

Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said the custom-fitted Service NSW bus would be making its way across the region, starting with a trip to Tabulam and Drake, before heading further afield to Deepwater, Ashford, Boggabilla and Mungindi.

 

“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.

 

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, Service NSW has also become the one-stop-shop for information on State and Commonwealth Government assistance as well and current restrictions in NSW.”

 

The Mobile Service Centre will be cashless, with payment options including cheque, EFTPOS or credit card.

 

As the drought continues to impact NSW, Cost of Living specialists on board the Mobile Service Centres can help with drought-specific rebates and support, during a Cost of Living appointment.

 

Armidale, Inverell, Glen Innes and Moree each have a Service NSW Centre.
