Heavy Vehicle Charges Model Law


The Heavy Vehicle Charges Model Law sets registration charges for heavy vehicles and defines the methodology for calculating annual adjustments.

In November 2017, the Transport and Infrastructure Council 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 2018 to 30 June 2020. Registration charges have separate roads and regulatory components.

This model law gave effect to the 2018–19 and 2019–20 heavy vehicle registration charges and replaced earlier charging legislation and amendments.
