Thousands of trade apprentices who rely on their car to travel to work every day will be hundreds of dollars better off with the State Government extending its registration discount program.

Under the scheme, eligible apprentice tradies can apply for a 50 per cent discount on their vehicle’s registration fee and Transport Accident Charge.

The Labor Government has expanded the program to include all eligible apprentices who use their vehicle to get to and from work between 8.30pm and 5.30am.

Eligible apprentices paying standard registration on a light vehicle in metropolitan Melbourne, will save $408.20 per year, outer metropolitan areas $381.30 and in rural areas $349.95.

To be eligible for the discount all apprentices must be registered with the Victorian Registrations Qualification Authority, must use their own car, van or ute and regularly use it in the course of their apprenticeship.

Premier Daniel Andrews said “We’re putting money back in the pockets of thousands more Victorian apprentices, helping ease their cost of living pressures.”
