Before you drive the vehicle, the new number plates must be fitted to your vehicle, so make sure you bring the appropriate tools to either remove or affix your plates. Screws are not supplied with new plates.
If you are new to Victoria and have an interstate driver licence, you will also need to change it over to a Victorian licence once you have been living here for more than three months.
Note: If you are more than 5 minutes late for your appointment, you may be required to transfer your appointment to the next available timeslot and pay another appointment fee.
Interstate number plates
You may return your interstate number plates to VicRoads once the vehicle is registered in Victoria. You will be provided with a receipt for the number plates.
VicRoads is unable to process interstate registration cancellations or refunds. Due to variations in rules between jurisdictions, you are encouraged to check with the jurisdiction that the vehicle is registered in as to its refund policy.
