Vic Quad bike safety rebate scheme extended 30 June 2020

04-Oct-2019

The Victorian Government’s quad bike safety rebate has been extended to 30 June 2020. 

It’s now open to farmers whose main source of income is not from farming. The rebate offers up to $1200 for two operator protective devices (OPD).

The rebate offers up to $1200 for two operator protective devices or $1200 for an alternate vehicle such as a side-by-side or small utility vehicle.

“Quad bikes are a major cause of injury and death on Victorian farms. So far this year, we have had seven quad bike deaths in Australia -  two of which were young children, and countless trips to the emergency department with serious, life-altering injuries,” said Mr David Jochinke, VFF President.

OPDs can dramatically reduce the risk of being stuck underneath a rolled quad bike and suffocating to death.

To apply, contact the VFF on 1300 882 833 or visit https://www.vff.org.au/quadbike before 30 September 2019.
