Originally posted by Dellboy999 NSW already has this system, and has been in place for as long as I can recall, I think it is 300-600 a year to keep personal plates, (I am sure it is 600 just cant remember).
So hows that for revenue.
Shit i thought we were going to be the first.
Also id like to know for the people including myself that already have private plates whats instore for us???
I cant believe its $600 (or is it $300?) in NSW per year for a personal plate!
And what a coincidence, the standard NSW plates are yellow, virtually forcing anyone who wants their car to look good to invest in a personal plate....
In NSW, its only fully customised plates that are billed on a yearly basis. I.E. "1SIKWRX" is a yearly billed plate, while AXR-850 ( in black / yellow ) is fine.
We also have the slimline in a variety of formats, which again, as long as you stay within the normal format, doesn't attract the yearly charge. . . . ( I personally run black on white slimlines in the AB-123 format ).
White on Black "Personal Plates" ( with your initials etc ), are also a one off fee. . .
There are still heaps of options for interesting plates that don't cost much, as long as your creative :)
