If you believe you’re eligible for free or half-price vehicle registration through Toll Relief but were unable to make a claim when renewing your registration, you can apply to have your claim reviewed.
You can also request a review if you do not meet the eligibility criteria, but you believe your circumstances should be given special consideration.
The Toll Relief program started on 1 July 2018. If you meet the eligibility requirements, you're entitled to either one free 12-month rego or one half-price 12-month rego for one car, ute, 4WD or motorcycle.
To be eligible for Toll Relief reimbursement, you need to be a NSW resident and have:
- a NSW personal toll account such as Linkt or E-Toll – if you've moved from interstate, check with your toll provider that you now have a NSW personal account suitable for Toll Relief
- your licence plate linked to your toll account
- make sure you keep your licence plate number/s and your contact details up to date with your toll provider.
- spent the minimum yearly threshold or more on NSW toll roads in the 2020-21 financial year while driving a NSW privately registered light vehicle.
|Financial year||Minimum spend for free rego||Minimum spend for half-price rego|
|2018-19||$1,300 ($25/week average)||$780 ($15/week average)|
|2019-20||$1,352 ($26/week average)||$811 ($16/week average)|
|2020-21||$1,406 ($27/week average)||$843 ($16/week average)|
|2021-22||$1,462 ($28/week average)||$877 ($17/week average)|
Note: Minimum toll spend requirements increase by 4% each year.
You may be eligible for Toll Relief special consideration if you:
- changed your toll provider last financial year, and your accounts when combined reach the eligible spend
- were not eligible for Toll Relief at the time of registration but become eligible before the end of the financial year
- have more than one eligible toll account
- were unable to claim last year due to personal circumstances
- have sold your vehicle
- believe someone else has used your entitlement.
