The NSW Government’s Toll Relief program will expand in 2019, providing eligible drivers with half-priced or free rego.

From 1 July 2019, drivers who spend $15 or more a week on tolls will be eligible for half-priced rego. Drivers who spend $25 or more a week on tolls will continue to receive free rego.

The program is available for all standard privately registered cars, utes, four-wheel drives and motorcycles.

Currently over 140,000 drivers are eligible for free rego. In 2019, this will increase to more than 300,000 drivers who will be eligible for either half-priced or free registration.

Eligibility will also change to allow multiple tags on the one account to count towards Toll Relief. For example, families with more than one vehicle registered to an account can pool their total spend to qualify for one half-price or free registration. 

Minister for Roads, Melinda Pavey said the program would be backdated, so eligible motorists will be able to count their toll spend from 1 July 2018.

“This is about putting money back into the pockets of hardworking motorists,” Mrs Pavey said.
