Road Access Permits Portal

The Department of Transport (DoT) is making it easier for the traffic management and construction industries to work with us by introducing the new Road Access Permits Portal (RAPP).

 From 17 October 2022, Memorandum of Authorisation (MoA) and Consent for Working Within the Road Reserve (WWRR) permit applications will be submitted through RAPP.

Access RAPP

RAPP replaces the current manual application processes and has been designed to make applying for MoA and consent permits simpler and more streamlined. It includes a personalised dashboard so you can see the applications you have submitted and the status, manage your account details and make secure payments.

Please be aware that the application process for the below permits remains unchanged until further notice:

  • Developer Funded WWRR permits 
  • Special Events MoA permits
  • MoA related Utility notifications (currently submitted to DoT Roadworks Permits Team)
  • Integration/Alliance WWRR permits
  • Big Build MoA and WWRR permits (i.e.LXRP, West Gate Tunnel, Metro Tunnel, NELP, Melbourne Airport Rail, Suburban Rail Loop)
  • MRPV MoA permits
  • Land Access Activity Notices (still to be submitted via current channels)

What’s new?


 How do I use RAPP?

We’ve created the following materials help you use RAPP:  

  • Training materials - including how to submit an MoA and consent permit application
  • FAQs - including trouble shooting 

How do I register for an account?

Need an account? Please complete the registration form [PDF 285 Kb] and follow the instructions to create an account.

Please note only accredited traffic management companies can apply for an MoA permit to work on a DoT declared road. Access to RAPP is organised as part of the Accreditation process and an individual in each organisation has the ability to create accounts for staff members. Please contact the area within your organisation who manages Accreditation to set up your account or visit the Accreditation program webpage to find out more about how to apply for Accreditation. If you are unsure if your traffic management company has an RAPP account, please email [email protected].
