    Yup, same as my maths. Seeing as I haven't been pulled over in years, I'd say I'm well ahead.

    I've never heard of being forced to back-pay if your rego is on hold.

    There is a cap - I'm not in public accounting any more so I forget what it is - somewhere around $110,000 per year. And yes to your second question, he will be entitled to claim ACC, up to the cap.

    Keep in mind that professional sports players pay the highest ACC levy in the country. It's actually amateur sports players who are a massive drain on the system.

    I thought the fine for using a vehicle with rego on hold was about to be increased? (And possibly with demerits!)

    ...I know the new ANPR cameras are programmed to catch people doing this, seems logical that they would want to maximise the possible "revenue" from this...can't have you poor people clogging the roads after all

    ...the days of dodging may be coming to an end!...so either pay up and shut up!!

    ...or grab your pitch forks and get ready to join the mob!!

    ...there will be cake! (honest!)

    Nice logic, but at the end of the day you still need to have rego

    But the registration needs to be kept up to date.

    Maximum paid by ACC is $94,000 ish, regardless of salary.

    Not sure what other arrangements an All Black would have in place but it would be private cover.

    Cheers

    Why? You can always put your rego on hold.

    in your ignorpants, you have confused continuous vehicle licensing with registration.
    You also used the word "need".
    Air, food, water, shelter, porn, beer. These are things i NEED. To give my shit to the govt?
    Nope. Dont need.

    Can we support lower regos even if we don't intend paying for one anyway?
    If the cost was lowered significantly I would still rather run the risk with the fines in there current state.

    It is, but my GSXR has an exemption from continuous licensing.
