Vehicle licencing fee reducing in 2015 - don't pay more than you have to
On 1 July 2015 the ACC levy portion of your vehicle licensing fee (rego) is going down by an average of 41% depending on your type of vehicle.
To make sure you don’t pay more than necessary you may want to consider opting for a shorter licensing renewal period, for example three or six months. That way you’ll be ready to take full advantage of the new lower price when your vehicle licence comes up for renewal after July 2015.
For more information see the Frequenty Asked Questions on the NZ Transport Agency website or call ACC on 0800 222 776.
