Highway Permit Applications

Permits are required by any person or organisation wanting to either:

  • conduct a foot or bike race or similar on Victorian roads including rolling road closures; or
  • collect money from vehicles on a public road at an intersection (known as tin-rattling).

  Highway collections and events are regulated by law to ensure that they are coordinated and all relevant parties are aware of the plan to have pedestrians or bicycles on roads for special purposes unrelated to day-to-day activities.

  The person or organisation conducting the event or collection must apply to the Chief Commissioner for a permit to conduct the event or collection.
