as you can see more expensive than a car!! NZ must be the only contry in the world not encouraging people to get out of cars!! Its been a real shock to most riders and mass protests have been organised. There has also been a new organisation established to protect the interests of the NZ motorcycling community here http://www.mag-nz.org/

so check it out and lets know what you think!

your registration includes an element of ACC

and you don't have to have compulsory insurance as ACC covers you against claims for personal injury by third parties

however the way they allocate ACC blame is questionable

Also if you have more than one vehicle you pay several times for the same ACC coverage


Left NZ a long time ago, currently reside in the UK

one of bikes being pre 71 is road tax exempt and come end of november is also MOT exempt as they are exepmting allpre 60 vehicles from  MOT

Would I go back to NZ, no, it would cost too much in rego and insurance, also most of my bikes have been modified and would be illegal there

40 years for classic rego and I'm pretty sure it's from the 1st of Jan of the 40th year.

Also ACC levys suck, huge rego levy plus you have to pay 1.7% on your taxable income

New Zealand has a two-part system for vehicles: an initial registration to identify the person responsible for the vehicle and to issue registration plates;  purchase of a license label which permits driving the vehicle on public roads for the specified period.

A cumbersome process, and extremely expensive for motorcyclists!

And the major part of that cost is the ACC
