Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2013, prescribe the rates of road user charges payable under the Road User Charges Act 2012 (the principal Act)—

  • for distance licences for RUC vehicles; and

  • in respect of additional weight carried by combination vehicles operating under an additional licence.

These regulations revoke and replace the Road User Charges (Rates) Regulations 2012. The rates prescribed in these regulations increase road user charges by an average that is equivalent to the 3 cents per litre increase in fuel excise duty on petrol, which is to take effect at the same time.

Under section 85(4)(a) of the principal Act, these regulations will expire on the close of 31 December 2013 unless they are expressly confirmed by an Act of Parliament passed before that date.


Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 16 May 2013.
