when i had it cleared the guy laughed and siad what a joke for a missing button.. and my exhaust was only 5mm's to low but was easy fixed just bent a couple of arms and it pulled the exhaust up!

Yeah we NSW people have to do an annual inspection, funny thing is the vehicle can pass 100% legal by the RTA rules for a annual inspection and be defected by the police as soon as it is on a public road, this is common knowledge, many of the things are justified but many are ludicrous.

The door hinge one is a new one for me, I only done the AIS examiner/proprietor course (2006), maybe that is apart of the blue slip side of inspections, yearly inspections are very basic, no emission standards, you could have a aftermarket blower/turbo and you can not do anything about it, it is about safety, nothing else, even then there is a few things that should be a failure and you can not fail someone on it i.e. no reverse lights, windscreen washers or battery not secured etc, you should record it but you can not fail someone on it.

I know what your talking about, although i never had a problem with them picking on my car when they can slap you with a 436 dollar fine for doing 76 kph in 60, i was tired coming home from work and not looking at the speedo.

P.S. Not my fault somebody keeps putting lead in my shoe! :lol:

I bet they were crumbs doing "tough" laps of the spit.

Nothing worse then going for a sneaky Sunday arvo surf at TOS and seeing the concentration of dangerous s**t rolling around the Spit. I honestly believe about 90% of the cars there could be defected. It is no wonder cops pull over anything with a louder than stock exhaust and I feel embarrassed to drive a modified car on seeing it.

bald tyres = fail
you guys think p platers cop it in port and coffs from the hipo.
try driving sydney to brisbane day in day out in a b double then you will know about harrasment.
as had been previously said harden up if you love cars you will get fines.
have ur licence ready,dont get out of your car, turn off interior lights,
be polite ,dont answer any questions other than saying your going home .
dont argue you will get more fines the spray or worse.
dont have stickers or poof lights on your car,
dont cruise on known roads on fri/sat night or take your friends home from night clubs or to houso streets to get on.
stay away from your car if the cops are near it. NEVER open your bonnet unless theres a fire.
and the most important thing dont have bald tyres .
my 2c :wink:

Another reason to own a pre `74 car....Jeez, some of the things they are nailing you guys for are rediculous...the mods you can do to a pre - 74 are so much more extensive!!! But hey if you have a late model you may as well leave it stock by the looks of this - very frustrating!

Takes me back to when I was 16 - 18 y.o. (nope, wasn't a P plater - they hadn't invented that shyte yet..) - Used to drive an EK with a very hot grey motor, jacked up about 3 foot in the back...anyway, used to get defected weekly for one thing or another. My fave was getting pulled over by a young cop in a Valiant cop car (remember them?) and my car had a sloppy 3 speed Speco shifter - cos the handbrake didn't work, I'd usually chuck the gearstick in reverse when I got stopped for defect checks - you couldn't tell cos it was so sloppy - anyway, cop pulls the handbrake, just about gives himself a hernia trying to push the car backwards to test the handbrake, so that passed. Next he wanted to try exhaust noise so without any announcement he just leans in an starts the car - buuut its in reverse...fires straight away cos its warm, takes off backward, the jacked up bumper takes out the grille and radiator of the cop car....Then, the old cop in the passenger seat gets out, belts the young cop across the head, tears up the defect he'd already started writing (for no air cleaners...) and gives me a form to claim damages against the SA Govt!! I got $212 in compensation for the `damage' to my bumper which consisted of cop car blue paint on the sides, which I left just as it was because it amused the crap out of me....

Do you guys still have the rego rule of you can leave a car unregistered for up to 5yrs without a rego inspection and register it the day before 5yrs is up? Or is that just an urban myth WA people were telling me saying SA is easier than WA LOL

What state has the cheapest rego, I am looking at WA rego due to mates that live there, there is a lot of soldiers and mining contractors driving around with interstate plates around here so they don't bother much forcing the rego to be changed over to NSW as hard as they used too, WA is roughly half the price for rego on a Falcon compared to NSW.
Again our number plates should read "NSW, THE EXPENSIVE STATE", and they want to put it up again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
