To renew your registration, you must complete an application form and lodge it with the VBA no later than three months before your registration expiry date.

Save and complete the form to your computer (do not handwrite; it will take longer to process). The application form includes a checklist on the front page to assist you with the process.

As part of your application, we require you to undertake a National Police Check. Once we have received your completed application form, you will be sent an email with details on how to complete the National Police Check. More information about the National Police Check can be found in the application form.
