Beat rego rush before Xmas break
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.
