All About Pink Slip or Rego Checks And Booking Yours With Kirrawee Autocare
Completing your car’s registration can be quite a hassle, which is why we would like to help you out by simplifying the process in the best way possible. You will require pink slips in the New South Wales State, for any vehicle which you have owned for over five years.
You will not have to bother yourself to send information about your car to the Road Transportation Authority (now called the RMS), as we will do that for you when your car has passed the test. If your vehicle has not passed the checks, then we will provide recommendations, and handle the fixes to be convenient in terms of both money and time.
We have provided vehicle owners right across the Sutherland Shire with rego checks and pink slips from the convenience of our Kirrawee workshop. Therefore, ask for our help whether you are in Kirrawee, Sutherland, Kareela, or beyond, and we will be more than glad to help.
If your car is due for inspection or registration, then we would like you to call us on 02 9521 4778 to book a rego check. Note you can also contact us if you need any other mechanical repair for your car. It’s also good you know that we have a valid Inspection Station authorisation from the Roads and Maritime Services.
About Rego Checks Or E-Safety Inspections In The Sutherland Shire
The RMS call their safety inspection the E-safety Inspection. It’s often is known as a Pink Slip.
To prove that your car is roadworthy, you must take this check. Besides, all cars that have been on the road for over three years usually require a safety inspection also considered as a condition for the renewal of your vehicle’s registration. The notice you get for your registration renewal will advise you whether you must take your car for some inspection. If you must get some registration for your vehicle, then you must consider visiting an Authorised Inspection Station (AIS).
The inspection can be done on any light vehicle with a NSW registration. For cars used for five years or more, this inspection is mandatory, considering that it’s a statutory requirement when renewing registration. This check is used to ensure that all vehicles on the road have met the safety conditions set whereby the examination results are relayed to the RMS previously known as the Roads and Traffic Authority (R.T.A).
What Is Considered In Rego Checks?
Rego checks are usually focused on the condition of the safety items only. We look for the safety in relation to:
- Oil leaks
- Brake performance
- All lights including brake lights
- Windscreen wipers, washers and horn
- Tyres conditions
- Wheel bearings
- Seat belts
- Body condition
- Suspension operation
These checks are quick to complete if your car has no issues and goes through the inspection successfully.
What Happens When Your Car Passes The Checks?
For all vehicles that have undergone the inspection successfully, their registration can be done here. Also, a valid Compulsory Third Party insurance policy (C.T.P green slip) is needed for the clients applying for registration. To get detailed information from the major insurance companies that are available, click here.
Here are a couple of Green Slip suppliers.
Our systems are joined to the RMS. When your vehicle passes the e-safety check that info goes directly to the RMS so you can easily go ahead and pay your Rego.
Your Vehicle Failed The Rego Inspection. What Next?
In our experience, the most common causes of failure are:
- Bald tyres
- Lights not working
- Windscreen cracks
- Excessive movement and wear in suspension
If you do a few simple checks before you arrive, you can alert us about the problems. This saves you time as we can have the relevant parts and be ready to do the repair while your vehicle is here for the e-safety check.
Vehicles, which have not satisfied the safety requirements, must undergo repairs before they can be considered again for the renewal process.
When a car has failed the inspection, it must be submitted for another test within 14 days, so you may avoid paying the full fee for initial inspection. Failure to take the car back for a retest within the 14 days means you have to pay the full inspection price.
Why You Need A Pink Slip (Rego Inspection)
If you think of the consequences you would have to encounter if your car is not registered, of having a nasty experience, which is not what you want. If you care about your welfare and that of the others, then you must make sure that your car is roadworthy. Every car should be registered to be enrolled for insurance by any company, so your vehicle must be roadworthy. With a third-party insurance, personal injuries for the affected persons in an accident will be covered for, without having to involve you.
Besides, you must recognise that driving an unregistered vehicle attracts on-the-spot fines which could be $1007 for driving uninsured and unregistered and four demerit points. If you are unlucky and the matter is taken to court, then you can face fines of up to $2,200 for driving unregistered and $5,500 for driving uninsured.
If you want to avoid all the hassles that may be caused by neglecting to get proper registration and insurance, call us today so you can book your rego check with the experts at Kirrawee Autocare. The pink slip has a cost of $39. We look forward to providing you with the best services you can get.
