How much does a Queensland Safety certificate cost?

by Andrew Automoto22. November 2013 10:35
A safety certificate lasts for 2 months or 2000km if it is for private sale re-registration, or 3 months or 1000k if it is being sold by a licensed dealership. The safety certificate is for only 1 sale or re-registration. Even if you decide to sell the vehicle a week after you purchase it, and the safety certificate is still valid, you will need to pass another safety inspection and receive a new safety certificate. If you fail your first safety inspection you have 14 days to repair the defects and return it to your safety inspection centre for re-inspection at no extra charge.[More]

How much is a Pink Slip/E safety Certificate in New South Wales

A pink slip is not a roadworthy, it just lets the RTA know that the car is okay to be registered. If you get a pink slip, and then get issued with a defect notice you will still need to get a blue slip. If your car fails the pink slip, you then have 14 days to have the defects repaired and bring it back for inspection to the same inspection centre so it can be issued with a pink slip at no extra charge. If it takes longer than 14days for the repairs you will need to pay for another pink slip. A pink slip is valid for 30 days from date of issue, so make sure you get your pink slip around the same time that your registration is due, otherwise you’ll need to do it all again.[More]

Victorian registration and roadworthy Laws

There is always a lot of confusion about road worthy certificates and selling vehicles…..Let me clear it up for you right now. If you are selling the vehicle it is recommended you have a Roadworthy Certificate and a transfer form, it is not a Legal requirement. If you sell the vehicle without a roadworthy even if you have sent the transfer forms through, the vehicle will not be transferred out of your name until an original copy of a current roadworthy is presented to Vic roads. This means that any fines, or complaints against your vehicle will all be sent to you! The Victorian police and Vic roads, will not be obligated to remove any fines from your name if the new owners do not accept fault.[More]
