7. Can I get a refund?

Payments made to Pegasus for the verification of uploaded insurances and licenses are final. We cannot refund any fees after the document verification process has begun. Please refer to the terms and conditions for more details.

8. Why am I being charged $30 for a new card?

If you are being charged $30 + GST for a new card, it means that you have not completed the RIW registration process and are instead purchasing a Pegasus card.

If you are working on the Mernda Rail Extension Project, you have the option to continue purchasing a Pegasus card or completing your registration through the RIW portal. The Mernda Rail Extension projects recognises both the Pegasus and RIW cards.

If you are working on the North Western Program Alliance project, you will need to discard your checkout transactions, complete the RIW registration for the employee, and then continue with the John Holland Worker Registration process once their RIW registration has been accepted.

Please ensure you follow each stage of the registration process for each project carefully to save time and avoid re-work.
