Pink Slip e-Safety Check Inspections

What is a Pink Slip e-Safety check?

This is a certification process that ensures all cars on the road are safe and well maintained to maximise the safety on our roads. The New South Wales government requires that your vehicle is to be inspected as a condition of your registration renewal if the car is more than three years old.

What has been known as a Pink Slip in the past is now commonly known as an e-Safety Check. Once the e-Safety Check has been completed the inspector uploads this straight to the RTA electronically so you can then complete your car registration.

If the vehicle does not need to be inspected by Roads and Maritime, the notice will include the line ‘HVIS Exempt – HVAIS Insp. Required’ in the ‘Conditions’ section.

Preparing Your Vehicle for a Brown Slip Inspection

As a heavy vehicle operator, you should make sure that your heavy vehicle is well maintained and roadworthy at all times. All Haul Transport located at Bennett’s Green Lake Macquarie Newcastle can refuse to inspect a vehicle that is not presented in a condition to be inspected such as clean and tidy. A subsequent inspection will then be required once the vehicle meets the required level of cleanliness.  The following points are a guide to preparing for a Brown Slip inspection:
