Federal Interstate Registration Scheme

From 1 July 2018, you won’t be able to register or renew your vehicle on FIRS (Federal Interstate Registration Scheme).

A new way to register your vehicle

From 1 July 2018, you won’t be able to register or renew your vehicle on FIRS. Find out more here about the changes.

We’ll be transitioning FIRS registrations that expire on 30 June 2018 onwards to a Victorian registration scheme. When you next pay your rego, your vehicle will automatically be transitioned. 

Even though standard heavy vehicle registration renewal fees will apply, FIRS operators will be provided with a one-off stamp duty exemption. 

What about my number plates?

From 1 October 2018, new national heavy vehicle (NHV) number plates were introduced. All owners and operators of FIRS-plated vehicles have received a letter advising how we're changing FIRS plates to NHV plates, and the steps that you need to take. If you haven’t received a letter from us, email [email protected].
