You can apply online once the vehicle has been registered and allocated a number plate. The rebate will only be paid into the registered person’s bank account, with the exception of lessors, who may be eligible when they are not the registered person.
To apply, fill out the application form on the Waka Kotahi website and upload the required supporting information – you will need the vehicle plate number, a copy of the vehicle sale agreement and your bank account details. Registered motor vehicle traders will also need to provide the required statutory declaration. Lessors will also need to provide the Acknowledgment of lease agreement.
