New rego op­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

RACQ has wel­comed con­fir­ma­tion Queens­land mo­torists will soon have the op­tion of pay­ing car reg­is­tra­tion quar­terly, us­ing di­rect debit.

RACQ Ex­ec­u­tive Manager Public Pol­icy Michael Roth said the move was a win for RACQ and all Queens­land mo­torists.

“As the State’s peak mo­tor­ing body, this is some­thing we have been call­ing on the Queens­land Gov­ern­ment to pro­vide for a long time,” he said.

“The op­tion of quar­terly car reg­is­tra­tion pay­ments through di­rect debit will go a long way to re­duc­ing pres­sure on the house­hold bud­get for many fam­i­lies.

“This, cou­pled with the fact that it’s now easy for peo­ple to check on­line when their rego is due, is an­other safe­guard for mo­torists wor­ried about for­get­ting to pay on time now car la­bels have been phased out.

“Ad­di­tion­ally, we’re pleased to see the gov­ern­ment is set to re­duce the sur­charge for six-monthly fees to $12.60.”
