Bushfire relief assistance

31 January 2020

Maritime Safety Victoria (MSV) has supported a move by VicRoads to refund vessel registration if the vessel was destroyed in bushfires. Marine licence cards that have been destroyed can be replaced for free.

If you’ve been affected by the bushfires in one of the declared State of Disaster areas, VicRoads will provide assistance to help with your registration and licensing services.

VicRoads considers any postcode in the following areas a “State of Disaster” zone:

  • Alpine
  • East Gippsland
  • Mansfield
  • Mt Hotham
  • Mt Buller
  • Mt Stirling Alpine Resorts
  • Rural City of Wangaratta Shires
  • Towong
  • Wellington.

Find out more about bushfire relief assistance on the VicRoads website.
