Using an interpreter or translator

If you need to speak with us in a language other than English, you can call an interpreter or translator for help.

How can I use an interpreter? 

If you need help making an appointment or completing a form, you can get help from your family, friends or a VicRoads office. 

If you need an interpreter or assistance to sit a VicRoads test you’ll need to visit a VicRoads Customer Service Centre and we can book this for you.
