    i recently managed to obtain a consession card due to my full time study and a friend told me i was able to get cheaper rego on consession. I have looked through the ezyreg site but havent found anything. Does anyone out there know if i can get it cheaper?

    i see your in sth aus.

    In vic, with the healthcare card (concession card) u can get cheap rego for the year so instead of payn $500+ u just pay around the $440 mark. Or u can have a 6 month rego and pay half of full price.
    Cheers Marc.

    Yea they are all correct, you have the ability to now have a half price 6 months registration or if you decide to pay for a 12 month rego you will get an $80 disscount, make sure all your id is correct though as your HCC will need to match your drivers licence name and addy also there are different types of HCC and you may find yours is not valid for this so you are best to find out through your rego office also their computers are linked so make sure it is valid or they will know!

    12 months, im certain of it, just got my car registered, and my brother just paid his, 243 to be exact.

    And Cordelia Calais mentioned, make sure everything is correct. Im not sure if its everytime you pay your rego but definitly when you do new rego, they ring up and make sure your card is still valid and that you dont have a car registered. You can only have 1 car on the discounted rego. Though this is all for vic so its best to check with the RTA in SA.

    Found this on the transport SA website:

    Concessions - Transport SA

    I'd say you would have to give them a ring or go in in person to get a legit answer. I wouldn't go by what people think as you'd be likely to cop a fine or have to fork out the full amount if the concession type is wrong.

    Your friend is wrong.

    A Health Care Card will get you cheaper fare on public transport, but not cheaper car registration in South Australia.

    I know mine is cheaper than someone living closer to the city! Possibly because you are in sale (from your profile) you get it even cheaper?

    sounds like you are only getting 6 months rego at full price $243 + $243 = $486

    My rego is due Monday $486.30 as dammo007 said earlier for 12 Months no concession or $399.90 for certain types of Health Care Card holders.

    Im definitly on getting 12 months rego, im on disability but i dont think that effected the concession rate.
    Though what i did find interesting when me and my girlfriend were booking tickets for qld, all the theme parks only except certain concesions, disability was excepted but student/health care card was not. But in Vic most venues accept either.

    Know the feeling, its closer to $900/year for a V6, paid $458 for 6 months rego recently. It's an absolute rort, charging on the basis of being a commercial vehicle when I don't own or run a business.

    Helllllo Just to clear this up, Rego in VIC at least is a little bit cheaper if you are on a health care card, like say low income or something you get about 80 bucks off. If you are on a pension of some kind it's much less (disabled/mental/old age) in this case you only pay half price or even less. Where a student falls in the ranks I'm not sure but there is definatly different prices for each kind of concession

    so does anyone know why you pay more for a ute even if you dont use it as a comercial car?? a commodore ute would be lighter than the sedan wouldnt it...?? less wear on the roads.... i might get a ute, put 3 tonne of stuff in it and drive around town getting full use of the extra extra extra rego cost
