Under an opt-in arrangement, can I specify the start date of my vehicle type approval beyond the opt-in period (eg. on or after Jan 1, 2022)?
No. An applicant can indicate the start date of the vehicle type approval only within that 6-month opt-in period (from July 1, 2021 until December 31, 2021).
Note that the Guide to Vehicle Type Approval Opt-in Arrangement encourages applicants to submit application at least 30 days before the nominated start date. This will allow an assessor to validate the applicant’s eligibility for opt-in and reduce the possibility of a period where you cannot add vehicles to the RAV.
