Over 24,000 Victorians have chosen the new three or six-month registration options each week, with residents of Frankston, Pakenham, Craigieburn and Werribee among the fastest.
Of the eligible vehicle owners taking advantage of short-term options, 51% have selected the three-month option, and 49% have chosen six months. Most are in the 26-35 year age group.
The new choices are relieving financial pressure on families and providing a boost to household budgets. They apply for owners of cars, utes, vans, motorcycles and other light vehicles.
Under the new arrangements an average three-month registration costs $200.20, while an average six-month registration costs $400.40, compared to an average annual fee of $800.80.
Making the switch to shorter term registration is easily done by signing up for a myVicRoads account at www.vicroads.vic.gov.au.
You will receive electronic reminders when your registration is due, and can return to the twelve-month payment option any time.
