Borger waives truck rego fees for farmers


NSW Government allows famers to extend expiring truck rego fees for free due to recent floods in the state

January 25, 2011

Farmers in NSW flood affected areas can extend their expiring truck registrations for free.

NSW Minister for Roads David Borger says the move is designed to give farmers a helping hand to recover from the floods.

A seasonal heavy vehicle can be registered for an extra three to six-month period, with registration fees and charges waived.

"The floods have had a terrible impact on our farmers and we’ve recognised the need to give them a hand during this difficult time," Borger says.

All seasonally registered heavy vehicles located in natural disaster flood areas declared since November 1, 2010 will be eligible for the free registration extension.

Existing inspections and compulsory third party (CTP) insurance requirements and fees are applicable to all affected vehicles.

The arrangements apply to operators wishing to renew seasonal registration of their heavy vehicle between November 1, 2010 and April 30, 2011.
