The Victorian Government has announced vehicle registration will be
free for eligible apprentices from July 1, 2023.
Apprentices eligible for free vehicle registration will save up to $865 every year if their employer can verify that their vehicle is an essential part of their work.
The $10 million initiative was delivered in the 2023/24 Victorian Budget.
Eligible apprentices can apply for the free vehicle registration via the myVicRoads portal on the VicRoads website.
Currently more than 12,000 apprentices who need their car for work claim a 50 per cent discount on their vehicle’s registration fee as part of the Trade Apprentice Registration Discount scheme, introduced in 2016.
This is all about making it easier for our apprentices to get the skills they need for the jobs they want. Minister for Skills and Training Gayle Tierney
