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 the rundown on what the different roadworthiness inspections, and how to make sure you’re covered.

Pre-purchase Vehicle Inspections

This is a fully comprehensive car inspection report which includes a complete check of the vehicle. The inspection involves a thorough jacked up examination of all mechanical components and also the bodywork, paintwork and under structure, for evidence of any damage or unsatisfactory repair work.

The interior and electrical components are checked and the vehicle’s electronic control unit checked for any fault codes followed by a road test. If you are buying a second hand car and don’t want to be stuck with a lemon then why not give us a call today!

Blue Slips 

A safety inspection report for unregistered vehicles. This proves your vehicle is roadworthy, but it also makes sure the car meets design and identity standards. We, at State Vehicle Inspection Service are an Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Station (AUVIS) where you can get a blue slip inspection.

Pink Slip Inspection

This is a safety inspection report that proves your car is roadworthy. All vehicles more than three 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).
