Satch:

 

2015 BMW 3 Series $85.59.  But my rego expires on 29/6... Does anyone know how they charge when a renewal is so close to 1 July?

 

 

 

 

You can go to the post shop and do a "MR27" to change the registration expiry date, more info here http://www.nzta.govt.nz/vehicles/licensing-rego/vehicle-licensing-rego/

I was able to renew mine online for 1 month (Mine expires on the 23rd June).  Cost me ~$15 for the month.

Paul1977:

 

nakedmolerat: What kind of car is sub $100?

My car is $200

 

2005 Toyota Mark X 250G is $85.59.

 

 

 

 

It seems bizarre that my 2013 fiesta is more expensive (~$120) than that. Looking to replace this end of the year before it reach 4 yrs old. Not buying a Ford ever again.

 

My diesel truck is 2014 and almost $200.

Are you comparing the same thing - as in not just the acc portion vs the total licencing cost?

Diesel is more because part of the acc on petrol engines is collected at the pump. Personally I'd rather the diesel portion was collected in the RUC, as that's a direct correlation with onroad exposure to accident conditions, but such is life.

98 Toyota Altezza = $112

 

09 Kia Rio = $127

 

 

 

Interesting that the older car is cheaper. Obviously the Kia while newer, isn't safer.

 

 

 

Guess you get what you pay for.

 

 

 

BTW, no sympathy for people who say they can't afford to WOF and register their car. If you can't afford for your car to be legal, then you can't afford a car.

That goes for insurance also (at least third party).




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

tripp:

 

yes mine is like $90 a year, happy with that :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

newcar with 11000km on clock but twice your price as 2005 version.

 

 

 

i would like to see the ACC levy drop - after all they have 400m plus in the kitty to go buying shares in stuff and it's not a tax - rather a co-operative insurance.

$85.59 for my imported 2013 Renault :)

 

In the UK the same vehicle was £185 annually, that would be $399.97!

Should be that motor cyclists get charged less - its statistically more often the car at fault when there is an accident, plus we produce less carbon, use less oil, destroy less roads, take up less space etc etc etc. victim pays vs users pays ;)

How come a 2004 RAV4 is a third of the price of a 2004 / 2005 Hond fit? THe honda has better economy, better safety etc etc etc.

$400 for a 250CBR

 

$ 525 for a 650 bike,

 

Yest, statistically, bigger bike riders tend to have less accidents. If a rider has an accident in their first year of riding (smaller bikes) then they are statistically far less likely to have big accidents on bigger bikes. Again - funny maths in this process.

Got the NZTA statistics to back those claims up nunz? I think if you take a look at the reports NZTA release you will be quite surprised. Off the top of my head I remember that motorcyclists are at fault roughly two thirds of the time.
