What the law says in Victoria about Driving an unregistered vehicle

Vic Roads

Driving an unregistered vehicle

Being charged with ‘driving an unregistered vehicle’ means that the police believe that you were driving a car that is not registered with VicRoads.

If the matter goes to court, all the prosecution has to prove is that:

  • you drove a car that was not registered with VicRoads
  • you did not have a ‘reasonable excuse’ for doing so.

They do not need to prove that you intended to or that you knew what you were doing was against the law.

It is not a defence to say that the vehicle did not belong to you.

The law says you must ensure that any vehicle that you drive is registered, even if you do not own it. It is also not a defence to say that you could not afford to pay the registration fee.
