Getting a pink slip in the Central Coast and the Hunter will soon be easier than ever before following the NSW Government’s announcement yesterday to trial mobile safety inspections for cars, motorcycles, boat trailers or caravans.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and the Hunter Scot MacDonald MLC welcomed the selection of the Central Coast and Hunter regions as some of the locations for the trial, as an example of the latest way the NSW Government is streamlining services across the state.
“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,” Mr MacDonald 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.”
Mr MacDonald said 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.
“Finding a participating safety examiner will be as simple as a click of the mouse with all proprietor and examiner details to be listed on the 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. The fee for the pink slip will remain the same.
