What is a Blue Slip?
A Blue Slip verifies that an unregistered vehicle is safe, and that it meets the Australian design and identity standards. Identity check is designed to certify ownership, and to identify stolen and rebadged vehicles in the community. A design check ensures vehicles meet design and manufacturing standards.
When is a Blue Slip required?
If your vehicle has been imported from another state or country, or missed registration by more than 3 months, you will require a Blue Slip (also known as an Identity and Design Check).
Our inspector can perform an inspection to assess, and in some instances clear, Defect Notices issued by NSW police.
