VIA wishes all members the compliments of the season. We recognise that both 2020 and 2021 have been extremely challenging and it is our fervent hope that 2022 will be better even though there will be challenges with COVID on-going, the Clean Car Feebate scheme taking effect on 1 April and the Clean Car Standard being introduced at the same time.
