Motorcycle rego cashback programme

From 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2021, we’re running a pilot where we’ll offer experienced riders, who are eligible, $200 cashback on their annual motorcycle registration. We’ll pay this cashback in two $100 instalments over the two years.

Applications open on 1 July 2019. If you’re eligible, you can apply for your first $100 instalment when you’ve completed the required Ride Forever courses.

We’ll pay your second $100 instalment 12 months after the first payment. We’ll let you know when you can apply for your second payment. 

We’ll continue to pay the second $100 cashback payments throughout 2021 and 2022.

Eligibility for the cashback

To be eligible for the cashback, you must: 

  • live in New Zealand and have held a full New Zealand class 6 licence for five years or more. For example, if you want to apply on 1 July 2019 you must have had your full licence from 1 July 2014
  • have completed two Ride Forever courses as outlined below
  • upload a photo of your current registration label.

The cashback offer is per rider, not per motorcycle. So, you can only apply for one $100 cashback per year, no matter how many motorcycles you own.

Courses you can do to be eligible 

Types of courses

You must complete two Ride Forever courses before you can apply for the cashback. These courses must either be:

  • one Silver and one Gold course, or
  • two Gold courses.

Timing of courses

  • If you’ve completed Silver or Gold Ride Forever courses before the pilot started, you can count one of them towards your two courses
  • You must complete at least one course after the pilot started on 1 July 2019. The latest date that you can complete a course is 30 June 2021
  • Your eligible courses must be a minimum of three months apart. This means if you last did a course in May 2019 you can take your next course in August 2019.
