Financial Support

The Victorian Government has support measures in place to assist small to medium businesses that may be affected by COVID-19. Eligible businesses with an annual payroll of up to $10 million can receive grants of $2,500 or $5,000. More information on eligibility and how to apply for the Victorian Government assistance for a business can be found here. There are also COVID-19 Test Isolation and Worker Support Payments, with more information available here.

The Australian Government also has  support measures in place to assist those that may be affected by COVID-19. You may be eligible for Australian Government support depending on your circumstances. More information on the Australian Government assistance available can be found here.

CPVV is not responsible for assessing eligibility for these payments and does not provide advice on eligibility for Victorian or Australian Government support. All questions about Victorian support measures should be directed to Business Victoria on 13 22 15 and all questions about the Australian Government support measures should be directed to Services Australia, whose contact details can be found here.

CPVV will continue to support the CPV industry during this time by pausing the following recurring fees until further notice:

  • Driver accreditation (see Maintaining your driver accreditation)
  • Commercial passenger vehicle registration
  • Driving instructor authority renewal – this includes any renewal invoices received recently: please do not pay these
  • Replacement Multi Purpose Taxi Program member cards.
