UPDATE – VH plates back on the market

Nov 13, 2019 | News

VH plates are again available for  all vehicles that are registered to provide booked services only with Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria.

You can request VH number plates at your nearest VicRoads Customer Service Centre.  A fee of $350 applies.  Plates will be posted to you when they are manufactured, early December 2019.

Mr Barton said today he was delighted that the plates were once again available.

“A major issue in the industry is the inability to properly identify booked service vehicles and the reissue of these plates makes it possible,” he said.

“VH plates are the brand of the marketplace. They are significant. They signify a professional service. It’s great to have them back.”

VH plates were inadvertently removed from the market in December 2017 creating issues for existing hire car operators wanting to upgrade their vehicles.

Any previously issued VH plates (VHA.000-VHC.999) will remain valid for vehicles providing booked services only and can remain on vehicles.


For more information on VH plates see the VicRoads website
