Cheap rego, free TAFE for apprentices & young workers

Free TAFE courses

From 1 January 2019, 30 TAFE courses and 20 pre-apprenticeship courses will be free under a reelected Andrews Labor Victorian Government.

Free TAFE courses will enable more students and young Victorian workers to get the skills and experience you need to get a job.

More than ever, the skills we need to build our state are learned at TAFE.

Half Price Car Rego

Trade apprentices who rely on their car for work will be hundreds of dollar better off thanks to cheaper car rego by the Victorian Government!

Eligible apprentices can save 50% off your vehicle’s registration fee if you:

  • Use your car to carry the tools of your trade, or
  • Travel to/from work between 8.30pm - 5.30am

Saving apprentice tradies up to $408 per year!

Cheaper rego will help support the skills of the next generation and ease cost of living pressures on apprentices.

The AMWU campaigned to roll out this huge saving to all apprentice industries - and we won!
