Car pool is currently offering a scaled-back service

SSP’s car pool service will operate on a reduced scale to provide vehicle hire services to SSP clients involved in essential work. The service operates from the Treasury Reserve (Basement of 55 St Andrews Place) from 7am to 5pm daily on work days. If you have any questions, please contact carbookings@dtf.vic.gov.au.

 

Book a car, bus or van for approved Victorian Government travel

To book a car you need to:

  • be a current Victorian Public Service employee;
  • register and create your driver profile in our online car booking system.

If you are a Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) customer, your booking must have a name and the new 31 digit format charge code. You will not need to raise a Purchase order each time you need to book a vehicle.

A bulk order has been raised for the whole of DELWP and this has been supplied to SSP Fleet. This will cover all DELWP bookings. All DELWP charges for SSP Fleet hire will be charged to the one bulk order.

  • What needs to be done?

    The log sheet needs to be completed by the driver at the end of each trip, regardless of whether the travel was for business or private purposes.

    While it may take a few minutes to complete the log book, please use a separate line entry for each day’s travel use and ensure that you fill in all the fields.

    What happens if I don’t complete the log book?

    All drivers are required to fill in the log book properly, as there are significant financial implications for your department/agency if this is not done, or if log sheet records are incomplete.

    Importantly, filling in the log sheet is a condition of hiring the vehicle and an incomplete log book may impact your ability to hire a vehicle in future.

    We appreciate your assistance in ensuring that we both can meet our legal and financial obligations in relation to accessing pool cars.

    You can obtain the log sheet by contacting SSP car pool on 03 7005 9255 or carbookings@dtf.vic.gov.au or download it below:

    If you need help with completing the log sheet, please read the instructions:

    After completion, please send the log sheet to carbookings@dtf.vic.gov.au.

  • Go to www.ssp.vic.gov.au/contact-us, complete and submit the feedback form. All feedback will be collected and stored in accordance with the DTF’s privacy policy and used to improve SSP’s services and delivery.

  • Go to www.ssp.vic.gov.au/contact-us page, complete and submit the Complaint form. The relevant SSP service representative will then contact you to discuss and resolve your complaint.
