What you need to know

The vehicle registration annual fees costs $55.10.

We have not been issuing invoices while we have been transitioning to the new regulatory arrangements. We will let you know when we will resume sending invoices.

The fee will not apply to the previous or coming year, it will simply be applied annually at a point in time. Therefore, we will not charge fees that would have been due in the past when we re-commence the process.

Please note that you do not need to take any action until you receive your invoice. In the meantime, if you wish to check your registration remains active, please search the Public Register.

Vehicle owners will have 30 days to pay the annual fee.

The details

Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria issues invoices for a vehicle’s annual registration fee 30 days prior to the due date. You’ll receive an invoice for your annual registration fee at the same time each year.

Payment instructions will be included on the invoice. If you do not pay your vehicle’s annual registration fee by the due date specified on the invoice, your vehicle’s registration as a commercial passenger vehicle will be cancelled.

If your vehicle’s registration is cancelled and you wish to continue providing commercial passenger vehicle services, you will need to register your vehicle online. This also costs $55.10. For more information visit register a vehicle.
