Under the Toll Relief program, drivers who are frequent toll road users can claim free or discounted car registration by completing one simple step online.

Those who spend $16 per week, or more than $811 during the previous financial year, can claim half-price registration, while those who spend $26 per week, or more than $1,352 a year, get a 12-month registration for free.

But the state government says 37 per cent of eligible motorists are missing out.

The top suburbs for unclaimed toll relief are Crows Nest, Wentworthville, Seven Hills, Blacktown, Baulkham Hills, Castle Hill, Kellyville, Liverpool and Mount Druitt.

“100,000 users are yet to take it up and we’d urge everyone to do so,” Roads Minister Andrew Constance said.

“Get in your claim, it’s your entitlement, it’s there to make the cost of living so much easier.”

To access the benefit, drivers can go online and link their e-tag to their MyService NSW account and the registration discount will be applied automatically at their next registration renewal.

Drivers who have already renewed their registration and are eligible for Toll Relief can apply for a reimbursement for the last financial year if they apply by June 30.
