LNP will deliver registration savings for families

The Newman Government today confirmed its commitment to deliver real cost of living savings for Queensland drivers by freezing registration fees on family vehicles.

Minister for Transport and Main Roads Scott Emerson said the LNP Government had acted in its first Cabinet meeting to freeze private motor vehicle registration fees for three years from 1 July 2012.

“We promised during the election campaign to freeze family car registration fees across our first term and we will be keeping that commitment,” Mr Emerson said.

“I can confirm that I have also considered the $48.85 traffic improvement component of the overall cost and that will be frozen as well.

“Since 2008, registering a six cylinder car has ballooned by 30 per cent to $492.30, making Queensland the most expensive state to own a motor vehicle.

“The Government understands the strain that puts on the family budget, which is why these two components of the overall cost will be locked i n for the next three years.

“The compulsory third party premiums are set by insurers, not government, and within a range determined by the Motor Accident Insurance Commission.

“We won’t be using government revenue to fund insurance companies.”
