How do NSW CTP safety inspections work?
Safety checks can only be performed at authorised inspection stations, and the results are sent to Roads and Maritime Services electronically. Click here for more information.
To renew registration in NSW, most light vehicles that are more than 5 years old, must undergo a safety check (pink slip) to ensure they meet minimum safety requirements.
All unregistered light vehicles need a blue slip inspection before they can be registered.
