Residents in Far East Gippsland will soon be able to conduct VicRoads business closer to home, with the Mallacoota Customer Service Centre to become a VicRoads agency on Tuesday, April 16.
The East Gippsland Shire Council facility will be the third council site to operate a VicRoads agency, joining Omeo and Orbost customer service centres.
The agency will offer a number of core functions, which will be increased over time.
Acting Director Community Strategy Wayne Richards said he was pleased council was able to support maintaining a VicRoads presence in Mallacoota.
“It is important for government services to be accessible to our residents. There are some tasks that can only be completed face-to-face,” Mr Richards said.
Providing a VicRoads agency at our Mallacoota Customer Service Centre means residents won’t need to organise a trip to Orbost to sit a Learner’s Permit test, for instance.”
Some of the services available at the Mallacoota VicRoads agency are:
- Learner Permit and Boat Licence tests and licences
- Concession – register renewal
- Re-registration of vessels
- Clearing a defect notice
- Work diaries
- Photos for licenses: firearms, security etc
- Registration transfer
The VicRoads agency will operate on Tuesdays from 2-4pm and Fridays from 10am to 12 noon.
Bookings are essential and can be made at the Mallacoota Service Centre or by calling council on 5153 9500.
