The Heavy Vehicle Charges Model Law sets registration charges for heavy vehicles and defines the methodology for calculating annual adjustments.
About the model law
In May 2021, infrastructure and transport ministers approved amendments to the Heavy Vehicle Charges Model Law. States and territories implement the model law through their own legislation and regulations.
This new model law provides updated schedules of heavy vehicle registration charges which apply from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022. Registration charges have separate roads and regulatory components.
This model law gave effect to the 2021–22 heavy vehicle registration charges and replaced earlier charging legislation and amendments.
