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 2016, prescribe the rates of motor vehicle levy, motorcycle safety levy, and fuel levy.

These regulations implement a graduated reduced motor vehicle levy for light passenger vehicles (being passenger vehicles that weigh 3 500 kg or less). Schedule 2 specifies various makes and models of light passenger vehicles and allocates each model to 1 of 4 bands depending on how a vehicle is expected to perform in reducing the risk and severity of injury (to occupants and other road users) in the event of a crash. Regulation 6 specifies the levy rate for each band. Regulation 6 also specifies 4 additional bands of levy, determined by a vehicle’s year, for light passenger vehicles that are not specified in Schedule 2.

Most light passenger vehicles are allocated to a levy band based on the Total Secondary Safety Index (TSSI), which is produced by Monash University. Real crash data from New Zealand and Australia is used to generate the TSSI scores, which indicate the expected performance of a vehicle in protecting all road users involved in a crash and reflects the relative incidence of a major crash. However, for vehicles up to 6 years old, if TSSI scores are not considered statistically credible or not available, laboratory crash test results from the New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) are instead used to determine the risk associated with a model and allocate an appropriate levy band. Market groupings are used to allocate levy bands where a credible TSSI or NCAP rating is unavailable.

These regulations carry forward, without change, the provisions in the Accident Compensation (Motor Vehicle Account Levies) Regulations 2015 relating to the Fleet Safety Incentive Programme.
