Road user charges from 1 July 2020

Road user charges (RUC) rates have changed for all RUC liable vehicles.

Check the tables below to see what your new rates will be:

Read the Road User Charges (Rates) Amendment Regulations 2020(external link)

RUC licences for heavy vehicles with a GVM of over 3.5 tonne will expire one month after the rate increase.

This means within one month of a rate change when purchasing a new RUC licence an operator is required to purchase an ‘overlap’ licence that starts from the current hubodometer reading. The end distance of this licence must exceed or be equal to the current licence end distance.

Any unused portion of the current licence is automatically credited against the cost of the new licence.

RUC licences for light vehicles (3.5 tonnes and under) will not expire.

RUC administration fees

An administration fee applies to all types of RUC licence.

Purchasing method Administration fee (including GST) per licence
Online $4.80
Counter sales, eg public counter agents and commercial fuel stops $7.80
By phone or fax $8.63
Automatic teller sales, eg digital purchase at a commercial fuel stop agent $6.20
Direct connects, eg industry agents, self service agents and electronic system providers $2.10

Revised RUC administration fees came into effect on 1 November 2014. For more detailed information on the changes to RUC administration fees download the RUC administration fee review guide [PDF, 58 KB] and the RUC administration fee review questions and answers [PDF, 61 KB].

Waiver or refund of RUC

Under section 33 of the Road User Charges Act 2012, the Transport Agency (as RUC collector) may waive or refund road user charges if satisfied that the vehicle will, or is likely to pay, excessive road user charges.

In deciding whether to waive charges, the Transport Agency may only consider the road wear that is likely to be caused by the owner's RUC vehicle.

Applications under section 33 will generally be considered where the axle configuration or the wheel type and/or tyre size differ from the norm for the allocated RUC vehicle type. Even when these do differ, a waiver or refund will not necessarily be applied.

Certain factors will not usually be considered under section 33. These include:

  • whatever sits above the vehicle chassis – unless there are legal limitations that apply to whatever sits above the vehicle chassis

  • the purpose for which a vehicle is used

  • the fact that a vehicle operates in the lower part of, or below, its allocated weight band. (The rates in the new legislation are set for an average of the weight band and are intended to apply to all vehicles within a band regardless of the actual weight.)

  • the age of a vehicle and/or the fact that it always travels unladen.

The Transport Agency has absolute discretion in its decision to waive part of the road user charges under section 33.

Once a decision is made, there is no ability to apply for a review of that decision. You may seek a judicial review with the High Court. If you choose to do this it is advisable to seek legal guidance.
