Don’t get caught out – from 1 July 2017 Victorian BDM certificates cost more!
You have LESS THAN 3 DAYS to purchase your Victorian Historical Certificates before the price goes up.
Currently you can search (for free) and then purchase a Historical Certificate:
- Certified Historical Certificate – $31.80
- Uncertified Historical Certificate – $24.60
After midnight this Friday the price goes up. I cannot find the new price apart from the statement that the new price will appear in the price list FROM 1 July 2017.
The government web pages state that the ‘Fee Unit’ from 1 July 2017 for the Justice Department (inc. BDMs) will be $14.22 – I’m not sure how that converts to an actual price! Bottom line, it confirms an increase from 1 July 2017.
Don’t go crazy purchasing certificates just for the sake of it, but if you’ve been contemplating purchasing one or more, it’s now time to have a more serious think about it.
Susie, Thank you for the update on Certificates. Gwen
Less than 3 days – Vic BDMs | I just love history

Thanks for the heads up!
I found the fee unit for last year – it was $13.94. So we can expect about a 2% increase. Not too bad 🙂
Hi Shelley – I found the same and came up with a figure of $25.10 – not sure how good my maths principles are! The increase for the Vic ones is generally small but buy 10 certificates and suddenly it makes a difference! Doesn’t matter how small the amount – it’s always nice to save!
