Pink Slip, Blue Slip Inspections & Green Slips – (02) 9386 0001
Driving an unregistered vehicle is a serious offense that can have far-reaching and catastrophic consequences. It’s a scary thought when you think about what could happen
if your vehicle is unregistered. Making sure cars are roadworthy is a big part of the registration system. It’s also about protecting people – every vehicle must be registered to be covered by compulsory third party insurance. This insurance makes sure that everyone is covered for personal injury if someone is hurt in a crash.
Here’s a rundown on different road worthiness inspections, and how to make sure you’re covered.
Pink Slip Inspection – We are your Registration Inspection Station
This is a safety inspection report that proves your car is roadworthy. All vehicles five or more years old require a safety inspection as a condition of registration renewal. Your registration renewal notice will advise you if your vehicle needs an inspection. To get the pink slip, you need to take your vehicle to an Authorised Inspection Station (AIS).
This is a pink slip that has been sent to the RTA electronically. This allows you to renew your rego online or by phone. You must visit an e-Safety Check Inspection Station to get your e-Safety Check.
CTP Green Slip
Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Green slips are a requirement for every registered motor vehicle in NSW, yet they can be difficult and time consuming to acquire. Green slips or Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance is a form of car insurance that protects vehicle owners and drivers from legal liability for personal injury to any other party in the event of a personal injury claim. CTP green slip insurance does not cover damage to property or other vehicles.
It is compulsory and is a condition of motor vehicle registration in NSW.
If your car is due for registration call our office today and we can arrange your green slips on the spot.
Blue Slip Inspection
A blue slip is an unregistered vehicle safety inspection report, issued by an AUVIS, which proves a vehicle has passed the required road worthiness, design and identity standards.
This is used:
- To establish an unregistered vehicle registration.
- When an interstate vehicle is registered in NSW for the first time.
- Second-hand vehicles may be selected for an additional inspection by the RTA
A white slip is an inspection report rejection slip. It details the repairs required before a vehicle can be registered. Once the repairs are carried out and you have the vehicle re-inspected, the vehicle will receive a pink or blue slip. Driving an unregistered vehicle attracts on-the-spot fines ($1007 for driving uninsured and unregistered) and four demerit points. If the matter goes to court, the court can impose fines of up to $2200 for driving unregistered and $5500 for driving uninsured.
