The relationship between Roads and Maritime Services and dealers is important. Together, we can help make the vessel registration process easier for dealers, Roads and Maritime, and the vessel buying public.
The Maritime Dealer Vessel Registration Scheme (MDVRS)
The MDVRS authorises approved dealers to register new recreational vessels which have not been previously registered on behalf of their customers.
This improves the overall customer experience, as a vessel registration number can be organised at the time of the sale so the customer does not need to attend a registry or service centre to complete the process.
Dealers interested in applying for authorisation under the MDVRS are required to have their vessel dealership located within Australia and be engaged in the sale of new vessels.
The Maritime Dealer Guide provides detailed information on the procedures for dealers to follow. It's also an effective training aid for new staff.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in applying for authorisation under the MDVRS, or download How to become a Maritime dealer, which sets out the application requirements.
