Pink Slip Wollongong

An eSafety (or pink slip) inspection report is required for most light vehicles more than 5 years old before they can be registered in NSW. Your registration renewal papers will state whether or not you need an inspection.

If you find yourself in this position, do not worry. The friendly team at Grauls Mechanical can sort your pink slip in the wollongong area quickly and professionally.

When your vehicle passes the eSafety check, we will send the report to Roads and Maritime Services electronically, so the only thing you need to worry about is simply sorting the registration fees out.

If the vehicle fails, you’ll be issued with a Repairs Needed report, and you have 14 days to have the work done. After 14 days, the report expires with the RMS, but do not worry, we can assist with another report if necessary.

Once all repairs are carried out, a follow-up check is required. If you return back to us, we will not charge you again!

An Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection report (blue slip) verifies that an unregistered vehicle is safe, and it meets design and identity standards.

 The main difference between a Pink and Blue slip is the Identity requirements and well as design requirements. Generally speaking, the scrutiny on the vehicle with regards for safety aspects is also a little higher.

 All unregistered light vehicles need a blue slip inspection before they can be registered in NSW. This includes vehicles:

  • whose registration has expired more than 3 months ago
  • that have been brought into NSW from interstate or overseas
  • that have no number plates
  • that were written-off, but have now been approved for re-registration
  • that require adjustments in their registration records because something about the vehicle has changed significantly, such as a new engine
  • that need defect notices cleared.

In most cases, the result of an Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection is sent to Roads and Maritimes Services electronically – but not always. The friendly team from Gauls will tell you what you need to know to make the process as smooth as possible. 

All Blue Slip reports are valid for 42 days.
