Cost of Queensland drivers licence

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Bruce Jones-Walker
7172 Bruce Highway

Total Signatures - 39

Sponsoring Member: Fiona Simpson MP

Posting Date: 3/08/2010

Tabled Date: 3/08/2010

Responded By: Hon Rachel Nolan MP on 7/09/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draw to the attention of the House the Government's proposal to double the cost of Queensland Drivers Licences to more than $150, making Queensland licences the most expensive in the Nation.  These changes, along with hikes in vehicle registration costs, the new State fuel tax, and above CPI increases for tolls make Queensland the most expensive State in Australia to be a motorist.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to oppose this massive increase in Queensland Drivers Licence charges.
