Car picACC 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 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.
