NHVR streamlines online access permit applications

THERE are some significant improvements coming to the NHVR portal from today which will allow customers to check their vehicle's registration at the same time as applying for access permits.

Business Improvement and Innovation Program Director David Carlisle said the upgrade would connect the data between the Portal's existing NHVR Access module and Registration module for the first time.

"From Wednesday 12 June, the NHVR Portal will provide additional functionality, linking vehicle configuration details and registration status between the two modules,” Mr Carlisle said.

"This will save time for customers and reduce the amount of data entry required by adding vehicle information from previously approved permits and display registration status.”

To make use of the new functionality, users with administration permissions need to activate the Registration module for their customer account.

Then within the permit application process, new buttons with 'Refresh Registrations' and 'Import from Registrations' allow users to import any available vehicle data.

Mr Carlisle said the NHVR Portal currently process more than 55,000 heavy vehicle access applications a year.

"Later this year the NHVR will begin rolling out additional services to the NHVR Portal, including the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme, Vehicle Standards and Performance Based Standards.”

The NHVR will conduct a free webinar on Thursday, June 13 at 11am for operators to learn more about what's included in the latest NHVR Portal upgrade.
