Road user charges administration fees

The Transport Agency has confirmed the revised road user charges administration fees. The changes include:

Changes to vehicle certification administration fees

Summary

The proposed changes to vehicle certificate administration fees will be of interest to those involved in providing, or intending to provide, warrant of fitness or certificate of fitness inspection services.

Other vehicle certification-related service fees have also been reviewed, including those paid by vehicle importers, and those paid by owners of special interest vehicles. New fees are being proposed for those seeking exemptions from vehicle compliance rules.

Note that the proposed fee changes do not relate to the cost of a WoF or CoF inspection itself; these are set by the inspection organisation.

Changes to RUC administration fees

Summary

Proposed changes to RUC administration fees will be of interest to those who are eligible to pay road user charges (eg owners of diesel or heavy motor vehicles). These relate to fees for RUC collection, distance overrun assessments, and exemptions from road user charges. It is important to note that the proposals do not include changes to road user charges themselves.

The fees for RUC administration are applied to recover the costs of administering the road user charges system and are set out in the Road User Charges (Administration Fees) Regulations 2012.
