New Vehicle Report to help Victorians buy second-hand vehicles

04 June 2024

Victorians can now buy a secondhand vehicle with increased confidence thanks to VicRoads' new comprehensive Vehicle Report.

The VicRoads Vehicle Report is the only available vehicle report that includes Victorian registration information including registration and transfer history plus information from previous roadworthy checks. The Vehicle Report will arm consumers with information that can help them to make informed decisions on price and safety when buying a second-hand vehicle.

Valuable information that purchasers of the VicRoads Vehicle Report will be able to access before buying, include:

  • Previous roadworthy results
  • Registration and Transfer History
  • Recorded odometer readings
  • Financial liability check (including an official PPSR certificate)
  • Safety and emission ratings
  • Stolen and written off status
  • Plus a comparison feature, presenting buyers with recent sale prices for similar vehicles in the last three months.

VicRoads Registration and Licensing Services Chief Executive Officer, Giles Thompson says, ‘Buying a second-hand vehicle can be a confusing experience for many Victorians. That's why we're delighted to launch the VicRoads Vehicle Report today. VicRoads is committed to enhancing consumer confidence and safety in the second-hand vehicle market, by providing them with information to assist their decision-making when purchasing a second-hand vehicle.’

‘This will ensure that customers have a more holistic picture of the vehicle’s condition, value and more importantly safety, so that they can then compare it to similar vehicles they may be looking to buy’, he said.

The Vehicle Report will be available to customers to purchase and download via the VicRoads website for $27.65 (including GST) and will also be available to secondhand car dealers. The VicRoads Vehicle Report is available for cars, motorcycles, caravans, trailers and heavy vehicles.
