Safe driver incentives return $70m to well-behaved motorists

MORE than 850,000 safe drivers in NSW are enjoying a 50% discount on their licence, putting about $70 million back into their wallets, Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay has said.

The 'Fair Go for Safe Drivers' initiative provides half price licences to motorists with a five year good driving record.

"The NSW Government is leading the country in rewarding good drivers - NSW is the only state that offers a 50 per cent reduction in licence fees," Mr Gay said.

"In two and half years, more than 850,000 NSW drivers have walked into a registry and been given an on the spot discount, allowing them to put up to $85 directly back in their wallet.

"I am all about rewarding the good guys and helping bring down the costs of living."
