NSW Green Slip for 6 Months, Is Another Inspection Required?

I just got my pink slip today and doing a green slip quote was offered a choice of 6 or 12 months rego. If I take the 6 months will another inspection be required afrer 6 months?


  • No. The safety check is good for 12 months.

  • As @whooah said above. Got a rego check today and asked the same question. Rego inspections are for 12 months regardless if you renew for 3, 6 or 12 months. (just make sure you dont lose your keys in that time… ;) )

  • Make sure the pink slip doesn't get ripped before your next renewal. You may have to pay for another one.

    • They are electronic in NSW. It's all recorded in computers.

      • That is true, the mechanic or service centre sent it through using your rego renewal info. I recall when it was done for my car’s “pink slip”(I don’t think it uses the colloquial name anymore), I no longer have the pink slip paper attached and I think I was able to see the information updated via my serviceNSW profile.

        We don’t even have rego stickers now!

      Or this OP will get salty with SevicesNSW staff and write feedback everywhere about the experience…

  • If you register for 6 months now you won't need another pink slip for a 6-month rego renewal, but you will need one for a 12-month rego renewal.
    (Also, just in case you're not aware, a "green slip" is CTP insurance. You can't register a vehicle for longer than the CTP policy. Eg, can't get a 6-month CTP policy and then register the vehicle for 12 months.)

    • Also.. you cannot get a 12 month CTP and use it to get a 6 month rego (in NSW). They have to start and end on the same date..

  • Plus you need a 12 month rego for toll road rego relief

  • I have just looked at the rego cert an it says safety inspection reports are valiid for 6 months. This looks like if I pay for 6 month rego I will have to get another pink slip. I will check with RTA. May have to pay for 12 months AAMI to get Lucky Club

    • That isnt right. It means that the inspection, if not used for registration or done in advance, can only be done so for 6 months. You will not need another one in 6 months (unless your "annual" date is due in 6 months.) and any way, it will say on your rego paperwork if a rego inspection is required to be conducted… Or not

      More info about it here… RMS - Short Term Rego Information

      If you are doing 6 months, then 6 months again, it's only due every 12 months.

  • safety inspection reports

    Valid for 42 days actually… 38 days left to decide.. cutting it close..

  • I called them up, said valid for 12 months, so I am taking 6 months rego
