We offer fast and affordable mobile pink slips to Medowie, Port Stephens, & surrounds.
A pink slip (esafety check) inspection report verifies your car is safe and ready for the road. An eSafety inspection (pink slip) is required for all light vehicles older than 5 years for the purposes of registration renewal within NSW.
Power Autos’ has partnered with Roads & Maritime Services to conduct MOBILE pink slips (Esafety checks). We are an authorised inspection station and we lodge your results electronically with the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). We inspect the following as part of the pink slip:
· Condition of the vehicle body
· Working electrics such as headlights, blinkers, dash lights, and interior lights Engine/suspension/exhaust and driveline condition
· Seatbelt condition
· Engine and driveline fluid leaks
· Brake efficiency test
Pink slips are mandatory to ensure vehicles are roadworthy to provide safety for their driver and other people on the road.
They do not guarantee the long-term 'reliability' of a vehicle, but rather it’s a means to assess a vehicle's roadworthiness at a particular point in time.
Bear in mind that you don’t necessarily have to wait until your current registration has near expired, as a pink slip inspection lasts 42 days.
