Rego rule to help truckies

THE NSW Government has introduced improvements to streamline the transfer of truck registration from federal to NSW plates.

Roads Minister Duncan Gay said the NSW Government was committed to reducing regulatory burden on truckies.

"Vehicles registered in the NSW Federal Interstate Registration Scheme (FIRS) and enrolled in the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) will no longer be required to complete a blue slip inspection when they transfer to NSW registration," Mr Gay said.

"The change complements a package of 'red tape cutting' measures already introduced by the NSW Government including:

Full rebate of the registration charge applied to tri-axle converter dollies and a 50 per cent rebate of registration charge applied to tandem-axle converter dollies.

50 per cent rebate of registration charge applied to spare trailers owned by operators with one or two hauling units (prime movers and rigid trucks), and no more than five trailers.

Stamp duty exemption on the purchase of new and existing heavy vehicle trailers.
