This light vehicle technical inspection course is the first of the two mandatory courses that an examining technician must undertake as a part of the Licensed Vehicle Tester Training Scheme (LVTTS).  The other course you will need to complete is the VicRoads Vehicle Safety and Compliance course.

Having successfully completed both elements, you will then be able to obtain accreditation to inspect vehicles for the purpose of issuing a certificate of roadworthiness.

New applicants applying for a Licenced Vehicle Tester (LVT) Licence will need to go through Vic Roads for a pre-approved application.
