Four-wheel drive vehicles for large electorates

Provision of four-wheel drive vehicle

A member of the House of Representatives for an electoral division with an area greater than 300,000km2, may request a four-wheel drive private plated vehicle instead of a standard private plated vehicle.

A senator for the Northern Territory or a member of the House of Representatives for an electoral division with an area greater than 300,000km2 may request an additional four-wheel drive private plated vehicle. Where an additional four-wheel drive vehicle is provided, the lease cost for that vehicle will be deducted from either (or a combination of) your electorate allowance and/or your large electorate unscheduled commercial transport limit.

Selection of a four-wheel drive vehicle

You may, but are not required to, select a four-wheel drive vehicle which is on the list of standard private plated vehicles. You are expected to select the lowest priced four‑wheel drive vehicle (and model within the range) that will meet your operational requirements. Vehicles are ordered through the fleet provider in the same way as other private-plated vehicles.

Running and maintenance costs

The arrangements for running and maintenance costs for an additional four-wheel drive vehicle are the same as for other private-plated vehicles
