    Looking at your list of mods, only your window tint and ride height would be an issue in NSW.
    The "pink slip" as it is in NSW is really a safety inspection.
    So long as your car isn't falling apart, and works properly, you will pass.
    To fail an inspection, you really shouldn't be driving your car

    Why not?
    Main things they look for in road worthy are brakes/tires/how the car drives
    I just slapped my stock airbox on, detuned it as much as I could, and gave it to them

    The guy behind the counter gave me a strange look when I said I was glad to hear it had passed and asked me "why did you think it might fail?"

    Well as the licenses are limited in VIC as they have been restricted by the VicGovt, only so many businesses/individuals can make a living by certifying road worthiness in VIC

    Therefore individuals/businesses are more likely to be thorough or risk, losing their license
    IMO in VIC they tend to look for more than brakes/tires/how the car drives, as they are well aware of the risks of not being through

    This is what is looked at-
    Check all lights
    Check windscreen, wipers and washers
    Check tyres
    Ride height (generally don't bother unless its really stupidly low)
    Jack car up check wheel bearings and tie rod ends - movement in the front wheels
    Brake test (no need to jump on the brakes like people think)

    They are the main things.
    While you are doing that you have a look at things like rust, seats don't move, seatbelts are in good condition, tyres don't hit anything and just the general condition of the car.

    The RTA (now RMS) rules are confusing and quite contridictory in places. So most inspectors just go by the theory of "as long as its safe"

    Unless Vic is massively different, don't see them doing emissions testing/mods checks...

    Throw stock airbox on, and they probably won't even look twice...

    I passed with 235/40 on 18x8 Mazda wheels when tire placard says 215/45 on 18x7

    Usually 1" larger or smaller than stock placard is legal
    Not sure on width, guess as long as it is within the wheel arch and doesn't go outside the body of the car... i'm safe there too

    Yeah all I see when I go to Sydney are road worthy cars. *Sarcasm*

    With everyone requiring RWC for their rego's, the limitations on who can certify your vehicle will be increased dramatically, allowing for dodgies to be produced in larger numbers, therefore circumventing the whole process
    I'm sure dodgy (brown paperbag with money in it) RWC's still exist currently, but it is just scrutinized more

    There is no Win-Win solution I guess

    Wheel/tyre can't hit any part of the car, can't go further than the guard, and can't increase track width more than an inch

    Default Car registration stickers to be scrapped in Victoria

    A buyer can still ask for a RWC up to 30days after the sale has taken place

    Selling without a RWC is not recommended by VICRoads and they require one when you submit the transfer papers

    Unless you have a mate, that knows a mate
