What is it?

Eligible  ACT residents are entitled to a concession on their motor vehicle registration.

Who is eligible?

ACT Seniors Card, Department of Veterans Affairs Gold Card,  Pensioner Concession Card holders, Primary Producers and owners of gas and  electric powered vehicles .
For full eligibility details see Concessions for ACT  Registrations and Licences.

How do I apply?

You will be sent a  courtesy reminder about four to six weeks before the expiry date of your  vehicle's registration.  

You do not require  a reminder notice to renew your vehicle's registration at any Access  Canberra Shopfront but will need the vehicle's number plate details.  Registration renewal can be paid at any Australia Post Office. Vehicle  registration can be renewed up to three months in advance.  

The concession is initially  administered as a discount over the counter, when applying for or renewing your  ACT motor vehicle registration. The Road Transport Authority can, if you wish,  electronically verify your eligibility for a concession and apply the  concessional fee to future renewal notices.

Some concession  card holders are eligible to renew their registration over the phone. To find  out more contact Canberra Connect.

Primary Producers
Primary producers  will be required to provide a Primary  Producer Declaration Form certified by a registered tax agent or qualified  accountant.

Gas and Electric Powered Vehicles
Annual Gas  inspection certificate must be presented for gas powered vehicles.  Electric powered vehicles are identified on  initial registration inspection and are not required to provide further  evidence.

Who runs it?
