PPSR training and testing environment

The PPSR training and testing environment is called Discovery.

It’s available for anyone wanting to explore, learn, use and test the PPSR in a replica environment. 

You can make registrations, do searches, and practise setting up accounts and secured party groups in a safe and secure environment. 

This version of the PPSR does not contain live data. We provide you with the ‘test data’ you need to get started, including credit card details and vehicle serial numbers.

IMPORTANT: data is visible to all users of the system so DO NOT USE REAL DATA.

Generally, it’s available 24 hours a day, except during maintenance and testing periods. For example, the system is down for routine maintenance every Wednesday 9:00 pm to 11:59 pm (AEST).
