Motorist Package & Safe Driver Program

Learn more about how the Victorian Government is helping to reduce financial barriers with incentives for new drivers and reward all Victorians for safe driving habits when renewing their licence.

The Motorist Package

From 15 August 2022, Victorian drivers will now benefit from a new motorist package to reduce licensing costs, reward safe behaviour behind the wheel and boost the state’s COVID-19 economic recovery by connecting more people with work, education and essential goods and services. This package intends to alleviate the rising cost of living pressures for families by putting money back in the pockets of Victorians.

The following fees are now waived for all new Victorian drivers:

  • Car and motorcycle permit issue fee
  • Probationary car licence fee
  • The Learner Permit Test Online course fee (first attempt only)
  • The Hazard Perception Test Online fee (first attempt only)

These savings are available to Victorian learners and probationary drivers.

Please note: In-person learner permit and licence testing appointment fees as well as Drive Test fees will remain.

Refer to the table below for a summary of changes.

The Safe Driver Program (coming late 2022)

Full licence holders (car, motorcycle, and heavy vehicle) who haven’t incurred demerit points or committed other road safety offences for three years prior to their licence renewal will receive a 25 per cent discount on their next renewal as part of the Safe Driver Discount program.

The program will be introduced for driver licence renewals generated after 1 October.

The Safe Driver Program aims to reward good driving behaviour to those who demonstrate safe driving behaviours behind the wheel. The Victorian Government is committed to improving road safety for all Victorians.
