    ATT NSW MODIFIED VEHICLE OWNERS.

    Just a heads up for people in NSW that have cars with engineers reports that were done before the new system started in late 2011.
    The RMS has issued a bulletin to blue slip stations saying that cars with engineers reports done under the old system will not be issued with blue slips unless they get a new report under the new system. Pink slips are not affected.
    This means if you let the car run out of rego you wont be able to get it re-registered.
    It also means you wont be able to put it on club rego or if it is already on Club rego you wont be able to go back to full rego.

    Ive seen warning posts on other vw sites about this issue an aparently this new system has been proposed to happen since 2012.

    So a manx SWB buggy that has been sitting is a shed for 10 years that has prior NSW registration history will not be able to get registered?

    It’ll be able to be registered Barry, it will need a VSCC though.....
    Looks like another beauracratic name change for an Engineer’s certificate to me....
    Only applies to modified vehicles.......just as it always has.
    Time will tell.
    Big lesson here is not to let your rego. lapse.
    Cheers,

    That’s right Barry, not unless you get a compliance certificate under the new scheme. Just want to point out that it shouldn’t affect cars entering the historic rego scheme as they only need a pink slip and there is no provision to provide a compliance certificate under the pink slip scheme. A pink slip inspection isn't an exhaustive check of a vehicle, it's a simple safety check. That means that a car mightn't fully comply with design rules (through modifications and other) but it is safe to use on the road and passes a pink slip. Saying that though some design elements are part of the a pink slip (lowering and wheel track comes to mind but there's others) so some modifications may be cause for rejection of a pink slip.

    I followed the introduction of the new certification scheme with interest and I distinctly recall the then minister saying that certificates issued under the old scheme would continue to be recognised for the life of the vehicle. This appeased hot rodders and other car enthusiasts at the time who had concerns about old certificates being accepted. Seems this new arrangement is just another broken Government promise.

    It does say for first registration in NSW, so if there is a record of it having one on the old rego record you should be ok. Second paragraph under Changes. Seems to contradict this in the next section.

    If you dont have anything recorded before you would have to get inspected anyway. Another way to get your money.

    SWB are near impossible to get passed under the old rules. I don't know if anyone has had one passed in the last 15 years. Once you change the wheelbase it goes under a different set of rules.

    That's what it sounds like to me.

    That is only if they are already registered. If they are not registered or from interstate you will need a blue slip.
