Can my vehicle be repaired right now?

9 October 2020

­The answer is yes

Victoria’s Stage 3 and 4 COVID restrictions mean it’s difficult for people to maintain their vehicle and ensure roadworthiness. The good news is that repairs and maintenance can be carried out on vehicles from permitted industries, meaning VACC workshops can help essential service workers do their critical work.

All consumers can also have critical and urgent repairs carried out on their vehicles to ensure the health and safety of all Victorians. In addition, routine maintenance and logbook servicing can be completed to maintain the vehicle’s roadworthiness. This is great news for people concerned about the condition of their vehicle and are unsure if they can engage their local VACC business for safety checks and rectification work.

To help, VACC has developed a safety checklist for vehicle owners. This list doesn’t include all potentially urgent safety issues that may arise. Instead, it focuses on the most obvious ones that can easily be checked at home.  

Ask yourself these questions about your vehicle:

  1. Are any lights not functioning correctly, including the indicators and brake lights?
  2. Are dashboard warning lights illuminating?
  3. Do any tyres have worn tread, or visible signs of damage?
  4. Is there body damage that could be dangerous to you or another person?
  5. Is your windscreen cracked?

If you tick ‘yes’ to any of the above, contact your local VACC automotive service provider for urgent assistance.
