Car rego discount promise
Red P-Platers will receive a $295 discount on their car registration under an elected Nationals Government.
The discount for red P-Platers is the non-TAC component of car registration, meaning Red P-Platers will effectively only have to pay for the TAC component including compulsory third party insurance.
Member for Euroa Steph Ryan said the initiative was part of The Nationals’ plan to tackle cost-of-living pressures for families.
‘‘About 50 000 Victorians get their red P-Plates each year. This commitment will make a real difference to young people struggling with the extra costs of buying and owning a car and other costs of life after school,’’ she said.
‘‘Seymour residents have been slugged with skyrocketing electricity and gas price hikes as well as 12 new or increased taxes in the last four years under Daniel Andrews.
‘‘For many young Victorians, owning a car is essential when starting in the workforce, taking up a trade or further studies.’’
Ms Ryan said The Nationals would ease the cost of living through better economic management and a series of programs to put more money in the pockets of Victorians.
‘‘We have already announced free school books for all secondary students at public schools which will save families around $2800 a student throughout secondary school,’’ Ms Ryan said.
‘‘We are also committed to delivering cheaper gas and electricity bills for over 900 000 low income earners by using people power to deliver cheaper gas and electricity costs that could mean annual savings of between $250 and $530.’’
