    How to check GVM.

    Anyone know there’s a way of checking the registered GVM of a vehicle without calling VicRoads? May have to on Tuesday but wondering if anyone knew? Friend has a van that was sold with a 4.5 tonne GVM here in Aus to keep it on a car licence - elsewhere in the world it was a 5.0 tonne van. All well and good, but there is a sticker inside the door that says ‘Truck licence required to drive this vehicle’ which suggests it may have had a GVM upgrade at some stage. RWC and rego papers don’t show this.

    The standard axles are rated at 5.3 tonne between them and a quick google suggests this vehicle is an easy GVM upgrade if it hasn’t been done already as all suspension and axles are designed for a higher load, but it was kept at 4.5 here in Aus to maximise sales. Just a VASS sign off required, but given Tuesday is so far away, trying to find some info him sooner.

    If it was over 4500 I’d expect to see Light Truck on the registration paperwork.
    Anything show up on Registration check : VicRoads when the registration number is entered?
    Cheers, Kyle

    Thanks - nothing on the VicRoads rego check and the rego paperwork is from the dealer so not a standard VicRoads form. I think he’ll be waiting until next week to find out. 😁

    This is the tool Garages and state authorities like the NSW RMS use for mass, ride heights, track widths, etc.
