Vehicle standards fees

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) does not currently charge for vehicle standards applications.

However, operators and owners will incur fees and charges for third-party services associated with vehicle modification, certification and inspection. Some of these fees are set by each jurisdiction, while others are market-driven. You should contact the vehicle modifier and the Approved Vehicle Examiner you intend to use for more information on fees and charges for their services.

Where an access permit is also required to operate a vehicle granted a vehicle standards exemption, an access permit application will need to be made. Fees apply to applications for access under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).
