Additional Registration Fee for Luxury Vehicles

If you own a luxury vehicle, you must pay an additional registration fee when you first register your vehicle, and again each year when you renew your vehicle registration.

A passenger vehicle or light truck is considered a luxury vehicle if:

  • it has a net weight of 3,000 kg or less
  • it is less than 7 years old
  • it is worth more than $40,000

The additional annual registration fee equals 1% of the vehicle's value exceeding $40,000.

You may be exempt from paying the additional registration fee for a luxury vehicle if the vehicle serves a special purpose.

The additional registration fee for luxury vehicles does not apply to passenger vehicles used as:

  • taxis
  • ambulances
  • limousines
  • motor homes
