Heavy Vehicle Registration Assessment Scheme (HVRAS)

A person can apply for accreditation to inspect and measure vehicles of more than 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM), or trailers of more than 750kg aggregate trailer mass (ATM) prior to registration under the Heavy Vehicle Registration Assessment Scheme (HVRAS).

The objective of the scheme is to provide people with accreditation to inspect heavy vehicles and trailers to ensure they comply with:

  • dimensional limitations
  • approved load sharing axle systems guidelines
  • safe tyre limits
  • vehicle identifiers (for example: engine number, vehicle identification number and chassis number).

Imported vehicles that have not be previously registered in Australia cannot be inspected and measured by HVRAS accredited persons.

Renewing your HVRAS accreditation

Your HVRAS accreditation is granted for a period of up to 3 years and, to continue your accreditation, you need to apply to renew your HVRAS accreditation.

An application for renewal of your HVRAS accreditation will be sent to you prior to the expiry of your accreditation. It is therefore important that you keep the HVRAS Administrator informed of your current postal and email addresses to ensure you receive your HVRAS renewal application. If you do not receive a renewal application, you can download and complete the HVRAS Application Form (F4331).

If you fail to renew your accreditation, you are no longer accredited to perform the duties of a HVRAS accredited person. No application fee is required.

Surrendering your HVRAS accreditation

If you decide to surrender your HVRAS accreditation, you need to notify TMR in writing via email or post to the HVRAS Administrator. 

Applying for a replacement of your HVRAS accreditation

If your accreditation document is lost, stolen or destroyed and you require a replacement, complete the relevant sections of the HVRAS Application form (F4331) and scan and email or post the completed application to the HVRAS Administrator. No application fee is required. 

Change of your HVRAS accreditation details

If you change your personal details (such as change of your postal address or email address), you are required to complete a HVRAS application form (F4331) then scan and email or post the completed application to the HVRAS Administrator.
