Sydney drivers who spend on average more than $25 a week on tolls will get free car registration, the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced.

The plan could cost the NSW government more than $100 million a year, the premier told reporters in Sydney on Monday.

Ms Berejiklian said she did not believe the decision would affect the funding of future road projects.

A State Parliamentary inquiry has found Sydney is now one of the most tolled in the world, with the cost crippling drivers.

The city is home to almost half of Australia's toll roads with nine currently, but that number will jump to 14 once WestConnex is completed.
