Tasmania features an extraordinary array of highly specialised and valuable historic motor vehicles, and owners of these vehicles have invested very substantial amounts of their own personal funds into the rebuilding and continued maintenance of these heritage assets.
That is why a re-elected Hodgman majority Liberal Government will double the number of days Special Interest registered vehicles are allowed to be used on Tasmanian roads, increasing from 52 to 104 days per year.
This policy is expected to benefit more than 6000 Tasmanians who have prized possession vehicles older than 30 years of age and who currently hold Special Interest plates.
In addition, a re-elected Hodgman majority Liberal Government will also boost the number of days Club Event/Vintage vehicles are allowed on the road by another 30 days each year
so drivers can enjoy the use of their restored vehicles in whatever they choose to do so.
This will allow more Tasmanians and tourists to appreciate the visual wonder of these charming old world cars and bikes.
Under our plan, we will also remove the cost of Motor Tax from Special Interest registered vehicles. This equates to an average minimum saving of around $64.50 per vehicle.
“We are committed to ensuring that Tasmania is one of the most affordable places in the country to live, work and raise and family.” Minister for Infrastructure Rene Hidding said.
“We want to ensure that all Tasmanians are able to enjoy a range of recreational sports and their favourite hobbies, including the preservation, restoration and enjoyment of older, classic and vintage vehicles.” Minister Hidding said.
