Permits, work diaries and fines to become more expensive in July


The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is set to increase the cost of access permits, accreditations and work diaries from July 1, 2024.

Fines for heavy vehicle drivers and operators will also increase, with the regulator saying everything is “in line with the Consumer Price Index”.

Access permits for Class 1, 2 or 3 are set to go up from $83 to $88, as are HML permits.

Advanced Fatigue Management (AFM) accreditation will increase from $153 to $162, and Basic Fatigue Management (BFM) will also go up to $107 from $101.

Maintenance accreditation will now cost $107 as opposed to $101, and vehicles to be nominated or remain in accreditation modules will cost $39 per vehicle (up from $37).

The same goes for mass accreditation, increasing to $107 and $39 per vehicle.

The cost of a work diary will go up from $28 to $30.

Meanwhile, Heavy Vehicle National Law infringement penalties are also set to increase – you can find the schedule for the 2024/2025 financial year here.

As an example, the infringement for a driver of a fatigue-regulated heavy vehicle not carrying a work diary will increase from $758 to $800.
