Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV)

The Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 (RVSA) introduces a Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV) which will be an online, publicly searchable, database of vehicles approved for use on Australian roads.

The details of each vehicle approved for road use will be entered on the RAV.

The following documents were prepared for Identification Plate Approval (IPA) holders under the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (MVSA). The documents will assist IPA holders and prospective RVSA type approval holders with the transition to the RVSA:

  • an example XML file XML: 1 KB: created using public data from the Road Vehicle Descriptor
  • the RAV enrolment form XLSX: 171 KB: prepared for IPA holders to obtain RAV access.
