Trade Apprentice Vehicle Registration Discount

The wallets of eligible trade apprentices will be a little fuller in the New Year as the Victorian Government discount registration scheme comes into effect from 1 January 2016.

Under the scheme, eligible trade apprentices can apply to VicRoads for a 50 per cent discount on their vehicle's registration fee and Transport Accident Charge, a saving of up to $385.70.

Bricklayers, carpenters, joiners, electricians and plumbers will be among those eligible for a discount if their registered vehicle is an essential part of their work. Not all apprentices are covered by the discount registration scheme.

Apprentices will need to provide their VRQA registration number, vehicle registration number and driver licence number to apply.

For registrations due on or after 1 January 2016, trade apprentices can check their eligibility and apply online at VicRoads after receiving their renewal notice.

Applicants will need to allow seven days for their application to be processed.
