Private Car Travel Conveyance Allowance

The Department of Education and Training (the Department) provides financial assistance in the form of a conveyance allowance to help families in rural and regional Victoria with the cost of transporting their children to their nearest appropriate school/campus.

Where parents/guardians drive their child to and from school, a private car allowance can be claimed based on the distance from a student’s residence to the school/campus attended.

Rates are calculated using the shortest practicable route (measured in kilometres) from the student’s residence to the school/campus attended.

Where there is more than one student in a vehicle, there are two rates claimable: ‘furthermost’ and ‘additional.’ The student travelling the furthest distance to school is identified as the ‘furthermost’ student.

 

To be eligible for the Public Transport Conveyance Allowance a student must:

  • Reside 4.8 km or more from the school/campus they attend. This distance is measured as the shortest practicable route from the student’s residence to the school/campus
  • Attend their nearest government school/campus appropriate to their year level
