Registration Vic

Registration Victoria

Vehicle owners who want to register their vehicle in Victoria pay every 12 months for registration Vic. This fee already includes CTP insurance from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC).

  • The registration cost depends on the class of your vehicle (sedan, hatch, 4WD etc)
  • The fee for TAC CTP depends on your postcode (metro, outer metro or rural).
Types of vehicle Risk zones
Sedan, station wagon, hatch, 4WD Metropolitan – high risk
Goods carrying vehicles – up to 2 tonnes Outer metropolitan – medium risk
Light trailer – including caravan RuralĀ – low risk

Note, the cost of registration Vic will change if you move house to a different risk zone, drive a different type of vehicle, or start claiming a concession. If so, you can always calculate registration fees online at VicRoads based on your postcode.

Registration will last for 12 months unless you are a concession holder. Eligible pensioners, for example, may get a 50% discount on registration and TAC fee for one vehicle and can also register for 6 or 12 months.

You must renew registration within 3 months of expiry or it will be cancelled and you will have to start a new one. To start a new registration, just go in person to VicRoads with these types of evidence, for example, your identity, address, right to register a vehicle and its roadworthiness.

In Victoria, you don’t usually need a roadworthy inspection to renew your registration. This is called a Certificate of Roadworthiness and you need it only:

  • When you sell a vehicle
  • To register a used vehicle after registration was cancelled (3 months after expiry)
  • To clear a vehicle defect.

Remember, certificates are available only from a licensed vehicle tester. The final cost depends on the age, type and condition of the vehicle.
