Car rego among SA fees set to rise

News

A raft of fees and charges will rise from July 1, with the State Government insisting the increases have been kept to “well under half the inflation rate”.

In changes to several government-provided service costs gazetted late yesterday, a range of fees and charges will increase by around 2 per cent in the 2022-23 financial year, with the Treasurer giving notice of the changes before next month’s state budget.

Stephen Mullighan says the increases are “well under CPI which currently sits at 4.7 per cent in Adelaide”.

“The Malinauskas Labor Government have committed to use the traditional Treasury methodology to calculate South Australian government fees and charges using a combination of public sector wages and increases in prices,” the Government said in a statement.

Car regos for four cylinders or less will go up by $3 to $141, while for five and six-cylinder vehicles the cost will be $287, up $6.

A five-year driver’s licence renewal will cost $245, up from $240, with a 10-year renewal worth $490, up $10.

“South Australians are doing it tough with cost-of-living pressures and it will be a relief to many South Australians that increases in government fees and charges are being kept well below inflation,” Mullighan said in a statement.

“The Malinauskas Labor Government are acutely aware of current cost of living pressures and will continue to ensure South Australians are protected from any unnecessary increases.”

The Opposition had last week urged the Government to “assure South Australians that crippling fee increases won’t be passed on to households” after ABS data showed inflation rose 4.7 per cent over the previous 12 months.
