Validity of safety check inspection reports
Light vehicle safety check inspection reports are valid for six months (excluding public passenger vehicles). This means that you’ll need to use the report to renew registration within six months of having the safety check.
Failed safety checks
If your vehicle fails the safety check, you can’t renew the registration until the required repairs are made.
The AIS station will issue a Repairs Needed report showing what repairs are required. If the repairs are completed within 14 days, the vehicle can be reassessed at the same AIS station with no additional safety check fees.
If you present your vehicle for reassessment after the 14 day period, you will need to pay another safety check inspection fee.
Once the repairs have been made and the vehicle passes the safety check, the AIS station will issue a safety check report, and you can renew your registration.
