E SAFETY CHECKS (Pink & Blue Slips)
An eSafety (or pink slip) inspection report verifies your vehicle is safe and ready for the road. Most light vehicles more than 5 years old will require an eSafety check before they can be registered in NSW. Your registration renewal papers will state whether or not you need an inspection.
When your vehicle passes the eSafety check, Doctor Diesel will send the report to Transport for NSW electronically. Usually within 15 minutes your safety check will be ready for you to renew your registration.
An (eAUVIS) Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection report (blue slip) verifies that an unregistered vehicle is safe, and it meets design and identity standards. 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 Service NSW electronically, and the report is valid for 42 days.
