Need to register your vehicle?
Most light vehicles more than 5 years old need a yearly safety inspection report (also known as a pink slip). Your registration renewal notice tells you when you need an inspection. The annual registration inspections exist to evaluate a vehicle’s road worthiness which in turn affects passenger safety.
We are an RMS Authorised Inspection Station and able to issue and submit electronically Blue Slip and Pink Slip reports.
Inspections include but are not limited to:
- Tyre quality and tread depth
- Wheel alignment
- Vehicle body condition
- Working electrics such as headlights, blinkers, interior lights and dash lights
- Engine/suspension/exhaust and driveline condition
- Seatbelt condition
- Engine and driveline fluid leaks
- Brake efficiency test
- Wiper operations
In addition to the visual checks by our inspectors, your vehicle will be checked on our state-of-the-art diagnostic machine “Safe-T-Stop”. It is electronically accurate PlateTronic® equipment approved by RMS, which not only checks the braking system but also the suspension and much more. It is a test you can trust, and you will even get a printout of the vehicle’s performance and photo proof that the test has been completed on YOUR car
Once your vehicle is checked, we will send the inspection report to the RMS electronically to verify your car is eligible for registration.
If your vehicle fails a safety check, you need to make the repairs before you can renew registration.
If you complete the repairs within 14 days and take the vehicle to be reassessed at the same AIS station, no extra inspection fees apply. If you repair the vehicle after the 14 day period ends, you need to pay another inspection fee.
Once the repairs have been made and your vehicle passes the safety check, you can renew your registration online.
NSW reports are valid for 6 months, excluding public passenger vehicles. You must use the report to renew registration within 6 months for the safety check to be valid.
