I've just received registration renewal bill from VicRoads for the car my wife drives - $696.50 First thought - WTF seven hundred bucks??? (Seems to be higher than last year but I don't remember exactly) So I tried to find what the renewal for motorcycle would be and it looks like it would be the same. I hope I'm wrong here. But it feels like the VicRoads is ripping us off. Interesting to see the breakdown: - $232.3 - registration fee (what a hell - I'm not "registering" anything, the cost of label??) - $422 - TAC charge (what exactly is TAC charging us for??) - $42.2 - insurance duty (ohh, it turns out all drivers/riders are insured. Against what??) I'm kind of ranting, but really, it all goes out of control. Nod me or not, but have a say here. Just, curious if that's something wrong with me or my rant has a bit of sense.
