Blue Slip – Defect Notice

How to clear defect notices and obtain blue slip

A blue slip or an Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection report verifies that an unregistered vehicle meets the design and safety standards. All unregistered light vehicles require a blue slip before registration in NSW.
Which vehicles require a blue slip:

  • Registration expired more than 3 months
  • Purchased from interstate or overseas
  • That have no number plates
  • Written off cars that where approved for re-registration
  • That require adjustments in their registration records due to some modifications
  • That need defect notices cleared.
