Light Vehicles.

Light vehicles more than five years old require an eSafety (Pink Slip) inspection and valid report to re-register your vehicle. Driving an unsafe and unregistered vehicle is a serious offence that can have catastrophic consequences. We can help you get registered and, on the road, safely in no time.


Light vehicles include:

  • Passenger cars.
  • Motorcycles, trails & caravans.
  • Vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of 4.5 tonnes or less.


We perform safety inspections for light vehicles, including most makes of cars, small trucks, and heavy vehicles. SWALE mechanics and technicians perform a comprehensive assessment of your vehicle, covering all critical systems. You will be informed of any defects and advised about prioritising repairs. We will provide you with a detailed inspection report upon completion.


Heavy Vehicles.

SWALE’s Heavy Vehicle Authorised Inspection Scheme (HVAIS) station is accredited by Roads & Maritime to perform safety, identity, and design checks. A comprehensive inspection report is issued upon completion, which can be used for registration purposes.

Heavy vehicle inspections are required for:

  • Establishing registration.
  • Renewing registration.
  • Adjusting vehicle records.
  • Clearing defect notices.

Failed Inspections.

If your vehicle fails the inspection, you will receive a report stating what repairs must be made to achieve a pass. You cannot renew your registration until the repairs are made, and you receive a successful inspection report. SWALE technicians will assist you every step of the inspection process. We want you to achieve a pass because we want you to be safe!
