TAFE RMS AIS Training

Become an Authorised RMS inspector

Become an Authorised RMS Inspector through the RMS Authorised Inspections Scheme.

How can I become an Authorised RMS Inspector?

You will need to undertake the Authorised Inspection Scheme training, which authorises examiners to inspect vehicles to ensure a minimum safety standard. TAFE NSW is the sole provider for the delivery of this training on behalf of the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) NSW phone 1300 791 186.

There are four types of vehicle inspection stations under AIS. An inspection authority must be gained for each type. This ensures that vehicle examiners are qualified and specific safety requirements are met.

The four AIS station types are

  • ASCIS - Authorised Safety Check Inspection Station (light vehicles)
  • AUVIS - Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Station (unregistered light vehicles)
  • HVAIS - Heavy Vehicle Authorised Inspection Station (heavy vehicles)
  • AGIS Authorised Gas Inspection Station (gas vehicles)

Upon submission of the required Approval for Training letter from the RMS and successful completion of the training course with TAFE NSW, you will be issued authorisation to conduct inspections by the RMS.

As a suitably qualified person under the authorised Inspection Station's Scheme, you will:

  • conduct roadworthy inspections, identity and design checks and, clears defect notices on light vehicles
  • conduct roadworthy inspections, identity and design checks and, clears defect notices on heavy vehicles.
