ACC is implementing a new system which will see the ACC levy portion of vehicle licensing fees (rego’s) reduce by an average of 41%. From 1st July 2015 onwards, light passenger motor vehicles have been assigned a levy band based on how well the vehicle is likely to protect its occupants from serious injury in the event of a crash. The levy bands range from 1 for a vehicle deemed to have the highest injury risk, to 4 for a vehicle deemed to have the lowest injury risk.
To find out your car’s levy band, go to the New Zealand Transport RightCar website http://rightcar.govt.nz/ and enter your car plate number.
From 1st July 2015 the ACC petrol levy will also be reduced by 3 cents per litre, from 9.9 cents to 6.9 cents.
