Vehicle registration

Ms GRALEY (Narre Warren South) — (Question 6761) My question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety and concerns vehicle registration, and I ask: what information regarding an option to pay for their vehicle registration in instalments can the minister provide to motorists in my electorate?

I am constantly contacted by local residents who are finding it increasingly difficult to pay their vehicle registration in one lump sum. I have been on this case with numerous ministers over a few years. It can be especially difficult for local families who own multiple vehicles and face paying over $1500 in registration fees each year.

Many highlight that they are able to pay for a range of bills, including their utilities bills, in monthly or quarterly instalments. All agree that being able to pay by instalment for their vehicle registration would be a huge help. So many within my electorate drive to work each and every day, and they rely on their cars and payment plan. They are asking if they can pay for their registration by instalment because this would make a significant difference in their lives.
