Coronavirus information

We're still open for business.

At VicRoads, the health and safety of our staff, customers, and the wider-community remain our highest priority. We are open for business but understand some customers may not wish, or need, to visit our Customer Service Centres. That’s why we’ve set-up this dedicated page as a one-stop shop of all the registration and licensing transactions that you can do online.

Based on the latest medical advice, we are suspending light vehicle drive tests and all computer-based license testing as of Wednesday 25 March.  We are doing this to protect the health and well-being of our staff and customers in this unprecedented time. 

We are contacting each customer individually to inform them of these changes. 

Medical review drive tests

We have also suspended all medical review related drive test assessments. 

This suspension will be reviewed monthly, however we will continue to be guided by the latest medical advice which means the suspension may be extended. 

Heavy vehicle and motorcycle tests

Heavy vehicle and motorcycle testing will continue as normal to ensure we keep industry moving in this unprecedented time.  

What if I already have an existing appointment?

All booked appointments will be honoured, at a time when drive test appointments become available.We are working through a process to enable drive tests to be carried out in exceptional circumstances, and we’ll have more to say about that in coming days.  

Interstate and overseas licence conversions
If you are an interstate or overseas licence holder, you can continue to drive on your licence. The period for compliance to convert to a Victorian licence has been extended and we will provide more details to customers in due course.

We are adhering to social distancing requirements at our centres with a ‘closed counter’ between each operating counter, so you can safely attend a Customer Service Centre for your registration and licensing needs.
