Vehicle Modification Guidelines in Victoria10 January 2017
There are many reasons to modify a vehicle, whether it is to add cargo barriers, cargo drawers, shelving, front bars, racks, extra seats, or to remove vehicle seating, to free up space. However, there are specific vehicle modification guidelines in Victoria that need to be met, especially in regards to modifying vehicle seating.
Vehicle seat alterations are one of the most common vehicle modifications done in Victoria, and there are very important requirements that need to be met, and any modification or changes in a vehicle’s description has to be approved by VicRoads. This is especially true in regards to wheelchair conversions, taxi conversions, and altering the seating of any vehicle to meet the registration requirements in Victoria.

Modifying any vehicle is serious business, and here at Jamieson Auto Fit we have many years of experience meeting and exceeding government safety standards for the vehicles we modify. When we make any modification that alters the description of a vehicle, we comply with government standards by obtaining a Vehicle Assessment Signatory Scheme (VASS) approval certificate. This is done by properly notifying VicRoads of the changes, so that vehicles can be used on the road, legally.
