Why you need to be a registered builder in Victoria

Registered building practitioners are recognised as industry professionals, proving they have the skills, knowledge, and qualifications to legally carry out domestic building work in their registered class. Those who do not obtain their registration when required can face serious penalties, such as prosecution in the Magistrates Court.

The Victorian Building Authority (VBA) is the regulatory body in Victoria that determines when you need to obtain domestic builder registration. This is the department that will also approve your domestic registration application.

According to the VBA, you must be registered to: 

  • Engage in building work valued $10,000+ (including materials and labour)
  • Undertake any domestic building work that requires a permit
  • Carry out more than one trade at a cost of $10,000+ (including materials and labour)

Many thanks Builder's Registration once again!!! After helping me with obtaining my DBM five years ago BR have helped me to upgrade to a DBU. Hand on heart, I could not have done it without the team at BR. I highly recommend them to anyone that is serious about obtaining their builders license.
