Govt slugs us with big bills

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE new fi­nan­cial year means more state gov­ern­ment­caused fi­nan­cial pain, with car regis­tra­tion and driver li­cence fees all ris­ing.

RACQ’s Re­nee Smith said mo­torists would be taken for a ride with regis­tra­tion and driver li­cence costs to rise at al­most dou­ble the rate of in­fla­tion.

Ms Smith said mo­torists had ev­ery right to be frus­trated as the State Govern­ment once again ig­nored RACQ’s plea for a regis­tra­tion freeze.

“From 2019-20 in­creases to regis­tra­tion and driver li­cence fees will be capped at CPI but for many this is a case of too lit­tle too late,” she said.
