Get registration and stamp duty concessions for electric vehicles

From 1 July 2022 until 30 June 2027, you can get registration and stamp duty concessions for eligible plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs).

What you can get

You can get:

  • free registration for new and existing PEVs
    • this includes previously registered, interstate transfers and imported or modified PEVs
  • stamp duty concession of up to $1,500
    • for vehicles valued up to $50,000

Motor Accidents Compensation (MAC) charges including GST and administration fee still apply.

Who can apply

You can apply for concessions if you have any of the following PEVs:

A BEV:

  • has an electric motor as its primary power source
  • does not have a fuel cell or an internal combustion engine.

A PHEV:

  • has an electric motor as its primary power source
  • takes and stores energy from an external charging input
  • fitted with an internal combustion engine as a secondary power source.

How it works

Concessions are applied to eligible vehicles, which can be:

  • of any age
  • registered to you or a body corporate
  • owned by you, including multiple vehicles
  • used for commercial purposes
  • heavy vehicles.

You must check that your vehicle details are recorded correctly with MVR to get concessions.

Your vehicle must:

  • have an electric primary power source and
  • show an electric vehicle type of BEV or PHEV:
    • on your registration certificate or
    • NT roadworthy inspection.

Registration concession

The concession will apply automatically when you renew your vehicle registration.

You can pay for your registration up to 6 weeks early if your current registration expires on or after 1 July 2022.

You can also claim extra concessions if you have an NT Seniors card or NT Concession Scheme card.

Learn more about concession cards you can use at MVR.

When a vehicle is sold, gifted or disposed of, the registration concession stays with the vehicle for the period of registration.

Stamp duty concession

If you have purchased an eligible vehicle with a sale price/market value of up to $50,000, the stamp duty concession will apply automatically when you register or transfer a vehicle.

If the sale price/market value of the vehicle is over $50,000, you must pay 3% stamp duty on the amount over. To estimate how much you must pay for the amount over, use the vehicle registration stamp duty calculator.

Check if you're exempt

You can also apply for stamp duty exemption if you meet exemption requirements. Check the application for stamp duty exemption PDF (195.5 KB).
