How to use this calculator

Motor Vehicle Type

Please select from the drop down menu which motor vehicle type applies to you:

  • Standard is a motor vehicle (motor car/bike/van/wagon) with a gross vehicle mass of less than 4.5 tonnes. The majority of family and general passenger vehicles fit into this category.
  • Heavy Vehicle is a motor vehicle (e.g. trucks, buses etc) with a gross vehicle mass greater than 4.5 tonnes. New and Used Heavy vehicles are assessed at the same rate, the lessor of 3% or $12,000.


Please enter the dutiable value of the vehicle.

  • New Vehicles: Dutiable value is the price fixed by the manufacturer, importer or principal distributor as the retail selling price of that make and model. Any additional price for a particular transmission must be added to the total for Vehicle Licence Duty purposes.
  • Other (used) Vehicles: Dutiable value is the amount the vehicle would sell for in the open market.
