GETTING a pink slip will soon be easier than ever before for motorists, following the NSW Government’s announcement to trial mobile safety inspections for cars, motorcycles, boat trailers or caravans, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall said today.
“The trial aims to ensure mobile pink slip inspections can be delivered in a safe and effective way, on top of improving convenience and flexibility for motorists,” he said.
“The NSW Government has made a number of services like online registrations, digital licences and online licence replacements easier and simpler.
“The addition of mobile pink slip inspections will make the registration process even more efficient.
“The mobile pink slip trial will be carried out over six months and involves an authorised examiner visiting a customer’s location to complete a safety inspection.”
Mr Marshall said finding a participating safety examiner would be as simple as a click of the mouse with all proprietor and examiner details to be listed on the NSW Roads and Maritime website.
“A customer will make direct contact with a participating provider, agree a call out fee, identify a safe and suitable area for the inspection and a suitable time for the inspection,” he said.
“The fee for the pink slip will remain the same.”
