How levies work

What levies you pay depend on whether you’re self-employed, an employer or an employee and whether you own and drive a vehicle.

  • When you pay your levy invoice, license your vehicle, fill up with petrol, or go to work, you’re contributing towards helping anyone injured in New Zealand.

  • All motor vehicle owners pay the Motor Vehicle levy. This includes car owners, truck drivers and motorcyclists. The levy covers injuries that happen on our road

  • As all New Zealanders are paying levies, we want to make your levies as fair as possible. We review levies every two years and make changes to reflect this.
