About the course

Our licensed vehicle tester course covers the legal and administrative obligations of Licensed Vehicle Testing and is conducted at our Box Hill campus.

This course runs one day per week (all day Monday).  Some hands-on procedures are involved (the taking and storing of vehicle photographs), the completing of the relevant forms and bookwork and the set-up of a data base.

Trade qualifications are not required for this course, unless you are wishing to also do LVT Technical Examiner and LVT Structural Awareness.

Applicants may be a proprietor/owner or a director of a business applying to VicRoads for a Licensed Vehicle Tester's Licence or they may be a qualified mechanic holding an examiner's accreditation required to sign part A of the roadworthy certificate or an administrative person completing the required bookwork for the LVT.

New applicants applying for a Licenced Vehicle Tester (LVT) Licence, you will need to go through VicRoads for a pre-approval application.
