Registration cards contain information about a teacher's current registration. This includes the registration category, expiry and any conditions they may have on their registration.

The VIT advises that registration cards may take up to 20 business days to arrive due to processing and handling.

Registered teachers don’t need a card to prove their registration. Employers can be satisfied that if their name appears on the Register of teachers, then they hold valid VIT registration. 

Card expiry

The expiry date listed on all registration cards – regardless of their registration type – is the deadline for the next annual registration period, which occurs on 30 September each year.

Icon Important Info

The initial registration fee paid by provisionally registered teachers (PRTs) is pro-rated, covering their registration from the commencement date of their provisional registration until the next 30 September annual registration deadline. The expiry date listed on their registration card will also reflect this date. A PRT is expected to complete the annual registration tasks and pay the annual fee applicable to their registration category by 30 September each year, at which time a new registration card will be issued. Visit the Registration fees page find out more.


Some teachers may have conditions placed on their registration. Conditions may be noted on their registration card, and may also appear in the Employer portal and the Register of teachers.

Conditions are usually placed on a teacher’s registration for a period of 6-12 months, with documentation required to meet the condition. When a registration card states ‘This registration has conditions’, it can relate to any of the following condition types

  • agreed – conditions imposed on a teacher’s registration, or imposed through a voluntary agreement with the teacher, which may relate to concerns about health or conduct
  • literacy and numeracy – conditions placed on a graduate teacher who is yet to pass the national Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE).

Please note VIT is unable to provide specific details of any condition(s) on any individual’s registration. All queries relating to any condition(s) on a particular teacher’s registration should be directed to that individual.
