Requirement to keep a motor vehicle licensed

Jo made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Jo to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Jo

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

I want to know the following details under the Official Information Act for the period 1 April 2017 - 1 April 2019.

1). How many motor vehicle registrations have been cancelled in accordance with Section 7 of the Land Transport (Motor Vehicle Registration and Licensing) Regulations 2011. Ie. How many motor vehicles have had their registration cancelled because they were unlicensed for a period of 12 months.

2). Did ALL of the cases above result in fees being generated for 12 months licensing (commonly refered to as rego) given there is a requirement for a vehicle to be licensed at all times. What percentage of the fees have been recovered?

3). Given that an unlicensed vehicle is not legally allowed on the road, what is the rationale behind collecting licensing fees for any period when the vehicle has been off road, specifically after a 12 month period?

4). Does the NZTA have ANY discretion in waiving/refunding 12 months worth of licensing fees when a vehicles registration is cancelled in accordance with the regulations outlined in Question 1. Particularly given the vehicle has not been permitted on the road for 12 months so there is no possible use for that money when compared with a vehicle that is active on road. Isn't it basically just free money to NZTA?

Regards,

Jo

registration cancelled because they were unlicensed for a period of 12
months.

 

2). Did ALL of the cases above result in fees being generated for 12
