Heavy Vehicle Charges Model Law

About the model law

In May 2023, 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 the annual registration charges and permit fees that are to apply to various heavy road transport vehicles from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024, and the road component of the annual registration charges from 1 July 2024 to 30 June 2025 and from 1 July 2025 to 30 June 2026.
