RTA & LPG Pink Slips

AGA automotive provide full road worthy certificate (more commonly referred to as pink slip inspection) services for all vehicles include vehicles fitted with LPG.

Our system is set up so that when your pink slip inspection is complete you don't have to queue up at the RTA to pay for your registration you can simply pay online at the RTA's website.

In New South Wales each year most vehicles more than five years old must pass an annual pink slip inspection.

If your vehicle needs an inspection, your Renewal Notice will say so (Trailers less than 250kg do not need to be inspected).

The purpose of these pink slip inspections are to check the essential safety systems of a vehicle including the brakes, suspension, steering system, tyres and wheels, lighting and indicator systems, mirrors and seat belts, exhaust system and the general condition of the body.

This annually inspection is designed to help keep you, your family and the general public safe.

Renewing your vehicle registration
Did you know you can now renew your registration for light and heavy vehicles in three easy steps - and save yourself a trip to the motor registry?

All you need to do is:

1. Buy your green slip. (Most CTP insurers send confirmation of payment to the RTA electronically).

2. Have an inspection (if needed). Have your vehicle inspected at any e-Safety Check station and they will send a copy of your inspection report to the RTA electronically.

3. Renew online at myRTA. The easy way to renew your registration

You can still renew your registration by phone, mail or at a motor registry. See your renewal notice for details.

What are the registration requirements for vehicles fitted with LPG?

New LPG converted vehicles
After an LPG installation is completed, the installer must fit a "compliance plate" and give the owner of the vehicle a completed "Certificate of Compliance" showing that the installation is in safe working order.

You must notify the RTA so that registration records can be amended. In most cases, this can be done through a Motor Registry. You will need to present the "Certificate of Compliance" and the "Certificate of Registration" for the vehicle when doing this. However, to avoid any inconvenience, you should first check that the vehicle identification details (engine number, chassis number and registration number) on the "Certificate of Compliance" match those shown on your "Certificate of Registration" for the vehicle.

If these details do not correspond, you might need to have the LPG installer correct any errors on the "Certificate of Compliance" or have your registration records amended to reflect any other changes to your vehicle (e.g. change of engine number).

LPG Vehicles already in service
When renewal of registration is due, LPG vehicles should be presented to AGA automotive for inspection. An Inspection Report will be issued upon satisfactory examination of the LPG system.

What are my obligations regarding inspections of LPG tanks?
The Dangerous Goods Act, which is administered by the WorkCover Authority, NSW requires LPG tanks to be stamped indicating the date on which the tanks were last inspected. These inspections must be conducted every ten years. As such, owners must ensure that the LPG tank is inspected before a period of ten years has elapsed after the date indicated on the tanks.

This date will be checked by authorised LPG examiners at the time of inspection for renewal of registration. When the inspection of an LPG tank is required, the owner should enlist the services of either a Licensed Boiler Inspector or an Approved Gas Cylinder Testing Station (as approved by Standards Australia for the type of cylinder to be tested).

AGA is fully qualified to inspect LPG tanks.
