What is a Pink Slip?

In short a pink slip inspection report verifies your car is safe and ready for the road. It is required in New South Wales for your vehicle to be inspected, as a condition of registration renewal, if it is more than three years old.

They have now been renamed: e-Safety Checks, which are sent to the RTA electronically.

If your vehicle PASSES a Pink Slip / e-Safety Check:

  1. Your mechanic electronically sends the safety check report to the RTA.
  2. Purchase a green slip (mandatory insurance).
  3. Renew your rego online, by mail, phone or your nearest MVR.

If your vehicle FAILS a Pink Slip / e-Safety Check:

  1. Your mechanic will issue a ‘repairs needed report’.
  2. Repairs will need to be made by the mechanic or another of your choosing.
  3. Have the repairs checked (if repairs are carried out by a Repco Authorised Service mechanic this will happen automatically).
  4. Once the repairs have been checked and the report cleared, your vehicle can be registered.
