Apprentices and the Personal Property Securities Register

Public news

GTO Manager, Jason Polgreen and the MTA’s Industry Engagement Specialist, Nathan Groves, met with Amanda Bills, Stakeholder Engagement Advisor with Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA), last week to discuss an initiative that will hopefully include education about the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) in apprentice inductions.

The AFSA is targeting the first car buyer cohort, in particular, year 10 to 12 high school students who will be looking to purchase a car in the near future.

They are seeking to raise awareness about the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) and its benefits as well as bringing about behavioural change through a variety of activities so that young people know how to do a ‘used car check’ prior to buying a car and the benefits of purchasing a car from a licenced vehicle dealer.
