- Vehicle body condition
- Working electrics such as headlights, blinkers, interior lights and dash lights
- Engine/suspension/exhaust and driveline condition

How long does a pink slip last?
Once your vehicle has passed inspection and you’ve been issued your pink slip, you have up to 42 days to use it to register your vehicle. If you do not register within that time, you will be required to obtain another pink slip and pass inspection again.
