Posted On September 20th, 2019

In Victoria, motorists cannot drive an Unregistered Vehicle unless they have an Unregistered Vehicle Permit (UVP) or their vehicle is exempt from registration. There are several reasons to obtain a UVP and it can be obtained when your vehicle is unregistered, or it is considered impractical to need to register your vehicle during the period you wish to get the permit.

Some of the reasons to obtain a UVP might include:

  • Moving the vehicle between 2 locations as a one-off event
  • When driving a rally vehicle on public roads
  • When using a carnival float on public roads
  • When heavy equipment (usually construction-based) is required to cross or operate
    roads but cannot meet usual road requirements

You can apply for Unregistered Vehicle Permits in Victoria by visiting the VicRoads Customer Service Centre.

To help you apply for an Unregistered Vehicle Permit, Victoria Car Removal has put together the simply steps you must follow.
