So my number plate is not far off cracking all the way through and likely falling off. I investigate replacing it, go to Vicroads website, click on their helpful link on the left navigation bar titled "Order a replacement number plate" read the information, all good, click the Order link, select as instructed "order a replacement plate" select general issue, enter number plate number, enter license number, name, select motorcycle and get a pop-up saying that this is a USA Plate Upgrade. Select that option, get told not available. Do some more searching around the Vicroads website and discover that from October 2010 motorcycle number plates can only be replaced with new motorcycle style plates. Ok that's fine, but further down motorcyclists can only get replacement plates by going into a customer service centre, that are only open M-F 8.30am - 4.30pm. So because I ride a motorcycle, I have to take a morning or afternoon off work to go into an actual Vicroads office, join a queue of everyone else with no idea how long it will take and get a replacement number plate and I can't even get the same number that I have now. Is this just a way to get motorcyclists to order custom plates which are 10x the cost of replacements?
