Light vehicle safey inspection deferrals
I have been advised by Service NSW that for customers who are required to obtain a safety inspection (pink slip) to renew their vehicle registration, but can’t due to travel restrictions associated with COVID-19, a deferral may be available.
The deferral is for registration renewals that are due to expire on or before 02 May 2020 or those that have expired (up to 3 months from the expiry. If expired more than 3 months, the vehicle’s registration will need to be re-established)
All light vehicles (with a GVM of 4.5 tonne or less) are eligible, except for vehicles with an outstanding defect notice or failed inspection report.
I am seeking further information on safety inspection checks for Caravans. I’ll update you when this information becomes available.
Please note the following will apply:
• The vehicle will need to pass a safety inspection at a later date
• Transport NSW will be in contact with the new inspection due date and instructions on how to provide the safety inspection report
• Registration suspension or cancellation may occur if a passed safety inspection is not carried out or reported to Transport NSW
If you wish to have your inspection deferred, please ensure your CTP insurance is purchased and then either call 13 77 88 between 7am - 7pm Monday to Friday, or attend Service NSW to have your registration renewed manually.
This announcement follows a Question on Notice I asked in Parliament prior to it’s suspension.
