If you require a surrogate VIN for a motor vehicle, motorcycle or trailer (including Caravans) in Western Australia please visit Department of Transport website website.

Low volume VINs for new trailers are no longer provided by the Department of Transport to owners or builders of low Aggregate Trailer Mass (ATM) trailers.

From 1 July 2023, all vehicles, including trailers, must have a presence on the RAV, unless a non-RAV entry import applies. A RAV entry replaces the need to fit road vehicles with an identification (compliance) plate that contains compliance and certification information. 

For more information in relation to RAV entry approval pathways please visit the Commonwealth Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts (DITRDCA) website.
