Authorised Inspection Station

We are authorised to issue and submit electronically Blue Slip and Pink Slip reports to Services NSW. Our inspectors are qualified to inspect your vehicle – from the operation of the seat-belts, lights and wipers to the engine, brakes, suspension.

In addition to the visual checks by our inspectors, your vehicle’s safety check will be also carried out on our state-of-the-art diagnostic machine “Safe-T-Stop” – electronically accurate PlateTronic® equipment approved by RMS, which not only checks the braking system but also the suspension and much more. It’s a test you can really trust, and you’ll even get a printout of the vehicle’s performance and photo proof that the test has been completed on YOUR car.

Blue Slip - Identity & Design Check

If your vehicle has been imported from another state or country, or missed to register for more than 3 months, you will need the so called – Blue Slip or Identity and Design Check.

The blue slip verifies that an unregistered vehicle is safe, and that it meets the Australian design and identity standards. Identity check is to identify stolen vehicles that are rebadged with identity plates from wrecked ‘written off’ vehicle. A design check is making sure vehicles meet design and manufacturing standards.

Our inspector can also perform an inspection to clear off a Defect Notice given by NSW police at a random police road check, if your vehicle is considered unsafe.

Michael and the team at Vaucluse Auto Repairs are amazing! I have twice taken them my Mercedes 4WD with a nail in the tire and both times they have fixed them either while I waited or within the hour. And guess what....they didn't charge me. Nothing, zero, zip! I wouldn't hesitate to take my car to them for any issue or problem as they are knowledgeable (especially when it comes to luxury cars), honest, reliable and fast. I would give them 6 stars if I could.read more

This is the second time I have had my car serviced by Michael and his team and once again I am very pleased with the service. Not only did I feel I can trust what Michael advises, he is considerably cheaper and more professional that the dealership service centres. Yes BMW Sydney, I'm talking about you.

If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would! I had put my car on the market and someone sold it quicker than I had imagined (lucky!) but I needed to service it before handover. I called Michael and he moved heaven and earth to get it done for me so that the sale could go ahead. Wonderful job too. Thank you for everything!!read more
