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 $23.64 x (1,700 kg / 100) = $401.88
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) $408.50

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.
