Be careful.  If there's not a /, that code would give a false result.  I suggest instead:

SELECT SUBSTRING(@test, NULLIF(CHARINDEX('/', @test, 1), 0) + 1, 3)

For example:

DECLARE @test varchar(50) = 'abc123&*('
SELECT SUBSTRING(@test, CHARINDEX('/', @test, 1) + 1, 3)
SELECT SUBSTRING(@test, NULLIF(CHARINDEX('/', @test, 1), 0) + 1, 3)
