# Light vehicle: Example, how to calculate your vehicle licence fee

Go back to previous page

In the following example, a 12 month renewal is applied to a standard motor car (Tare weight: 1,650 kg - the weight of the unladen vehicle):

Calculate your light vehicle licence fee Fee calculation
Vehicle fee per 100 kg x Total weight (rounded up to the nearest 100 kg) / 100 \$25.52  x (1,700 kg / 100) = \$433.84
Plus prescribed flat fee \$13.20 (12-month renewal: (discounted rate) = \$6.60) \$6.60
Total vehicle licence fee (rounded to the nearest five cents) \$440.45

Notes:

• Prescribed flat fee for a vehicle for a period of one year is \$13.20 discounted 50%.
• Any vehicle renewal term less than 12 months; calculation will be \$13.20 divided by 12 then multiplying by the number of months in respect of which the renewal is paid.
• 6-month renewal: (\$13.20/12)*6 = \$6.60.
• 3-month renewal: (\$13.20/12)*3 = \$3.30.

Key:

• GVM = Gross vehicle Mass. kg = kilogram. cc = cubic centimetre, engine displacement.
• kW/t = kilowatt per tonne, 1 m² / S³.
