Higher licence fees for vans, trucks, from tomorrow - age to become a factor

(Updated, first table amended by Transport Malta)

Higher licence fees for older vans, trucks and tractors come into force tomorrow.

Transport Malta said that the new fees will be introduced in line with a Budget measure announced in 2009. It means that the annual circulation licence fee will be based on the age of the vehicle apart from the number of axles, the weight and the type of suspension.

Most of the changes and increases in licence fees will affect goods carrying vehicles that were registered and licensed before  January 1, 2010, are over 12,500 kg and over nine years old.

The circulation licence fees applicable for vehicles licensed for hire will also increase, to be aligned with other similar vehicles.

Below is the schedule with the applicable changes.

  1. Annual Circulation Licence Fees for Goods Carrying Vehicles

Until the 31st December 2013 the annual licence fee is based on the following criteria: Axles, Weight and Suspension Air/Other. As from the 1st January 2014 the annual licence fee will also be based on the age of the vehicle.
