Costs of HVNL fines and access permits increasing

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has released details of cost increases to its access permit fees and to the cost of work diaries, along with increased fines.

Heavy Vehicle National Law penalties and fines will increase from Saturday July 1, 2023. As an example, the infringement for a driver of a fatigue-regulated heavy vehicle not carrying a work diary will increase from $711 to $758.

Access permit fees will rise by $5. Class 1, 2 or 3 access permit applications and HML permit applications will go up from $78 to $83; while the cost of a National Driver Work Diary will increase from $26 to $28.

Fees will also increase for National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme modules, which the NHVR says is in line with CPI.
