There seems to be a great confusion between the Blue and Pink slip.
W are trying to unravel the mystery.It is not all that complicated as one thinks,once one understands them , like most of other things .
In NSW it is a law, before registering any car, the car has to go to an authorized Blue slip inspection station to get a blue slip. The inspector of the Blue slip station has to thoroughly check the car for it’s vehicle identification number and the chassis number. Blue slip inspector has to visually site the VIN and Engine numbers of the car. Once the numbers are checked, then the inspector has to check the car for roadworthy condition. The car has to fully comply to satisfy the inspector , who has to follow the book and any mistakes made can be costly .Generally things as tyres, suspension,wipers, lights,brakes,seat belts and modification, exhaust etc are checked thoroughly. Once all is correct then the Blue slip is issued and car can by registered in NSW . After blue slip vendor has to buy green-slip and submit both documents to RMS and get a registration for the car.
