Safety check required when renewing your registration
Generally, light vehicles more than five years old require a safety check (previously called a pink slip) before you can renew the registration. Light vehicles include:
- Passenger cars
- Goods carrying vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Mass of 4.5 tonnes or less (without power-operated brakes)
- All motorcycles
- Trailers and caravans with an aggregate trailer mass of 4.5 tonnes or less (including those fitted with breakaway brakes, but not including those fitted with air or vacuum (breakaway) braking systems).
Your registration renewal notice, except in the case of some point to point transport vehicles, will state whether or not you need an inspection.
Vehicles used to provide point to point transport services must have a safety check at least once a year.
Safety checks can only be performed at an Authorised Inspection Scheme station. The results will be sent to Roads and Maritime electronically.
Once your vehicle has passed the safety check inspection, you can renew the registration.
