Beat rego rush be­fore Xmas break

McIvor Times - - NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS are be­ing urged to book now to reg­is­ter their car, truck, mo­tor­cy­cle, car­a­van, boat or trailer or risk miss­ing out be­fore the hol­i­day break.

VicRoads’ cus­tomer ser­vice cen­tres tra­di­tion­ally ex­pe­ri­ence a rush of new reg­is­tra­tion, li­cens­ing and re­newal ap­point­ments in the first few weeks of De­cem­ber. ‘‘If you’re plan­ning on head­ing out in a boat or jet ski, tak­ing that road trip in a car­a­van or camp­ing with your trailer along the Mur­ray, check your reg­is­tra­tion and make sure you book in now,’’ north­ern area act­ing man­ager Cathy White said.

‘‘De­mand for ap­point­ments to reg­is­ter a ve­hi­cle can dou­ble in the lead-up to Christ­mas and at times peo­ple can wait up to two weeks for an ap­point­ment.

‘‘We do our best to meet the in­creased de­mand this busy time of year brings, but there is no guar­an­tee of an ap­point­ment un­less you book early.’’

To book an ap­point­ment or for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, visit vicroads.vic.gov.au or call 131 171.
