They will go over your car with a fine tooth comb. They have the guidelines on the transport sa website.

Id never heard of a rego inspection being called regency inspection until I read it on here.Ive always known it as a rego or registration inspection.

In SA, the VIS (Vehicle Inspection Station) is at a suburb called Regency Park. All major defects (eg. suspension, brakes, engine, body) can only be cleared at Regency. Minor defects (eg.blown globe, bald tyre) can be cleared at a Police Station.

If you got mags, remove them and borrow some good stockies. Take off any extras that are not needed. Remove any large stickers on the windows.

Get a good mechanic to give it the once over before your appointment.

Don't expect to get passed first time. They will always find something.

On VS other than normal stuff, couple things to check are seat belt retraction speed, and seat welds on the floor of front 2 seats (under the car) these are checks the VR/VS's fail on a fair bit.


Clean it up as mentioned, remove what doesnt need to be there, make sure all lights, handbrake, seat belts, demisters etc work, make sure you have a baby bolt, and then hope for the best!!
