Motor Vehicle Registration Concession
Updated August 2016
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 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.
