Why Blue Slip Inspection is Obligatory

A blue slip is a statement you need to get from a licensed mechanic which proves that your vehicle is in proper condition, that it meets design and identity standards, and is as such safe to be driven on Australian roads. It is imperative for a driver to schedule a blue slip inspection prior to the registration process because you are required to enclose a blue slip with the rest of the paperwork when you arrive at the vehicle registration point.

A blue slip inspection is obligatory for all vehicles which have been unregistered for more than three months or if it was just bought, in New South Wales or imported from overseas. A blue slip is also obligatory for all vehicles that were previously written off, have no number plates, or need defect notices cleared. Furthermore, if the vehicle has been significantly changed (eg. new engine installed) you are required to take your vehicle to a licenced blue slip mechanic.

Here at Neysie Performance Centre, our blue slip mechanic will, as a part of the process, inspect your tyres, fluids, brakes, lights, seatbelts, and check to see if there are any leaks. The process is similar to pink slip inspection but is more detailed as it involves identity check to determine that the vehicle and its parts are obtained legally, and not stolen.

The cost of a blue slip differs based on the type of vehicle you wish to register – whether it is a light vehicle, motorcycle, trailer with or without brakes.
