An eSafety (or pink slip) inspection report verifies your vehicle is safe and ready for the road. Most light vehicles more than 5 years old will require an eSafety check before they can be registered in NSW. Your registration renewal papers will state whether or not you need an inspection.

When your vehicle passes the eSafety check, your mechanic will send the report to Roads and Maritime Services electronically.

If the vehicle fails, you'll be issued with a Repairs Needed report, and you have 14 days to have the work done. After 14 days, the report expires and you'll have to pay for a new eSafety check.

Once all repairs are carried out, a follow-up check is required. If you return to the same eSafety check station that failed the vehicle initially, there'll be no charge.

Trailers that weigh less than 251 kilograms and caravans with a tare weight of less than 411kg do not require an eSafety check.
