Less money in the wallets of EV owners, but more money in the budget for fixing our roads.

Owners of EVs and plug-in hybrids are no longer exempt from road user charges.

From today, EV owners will need to pay $76 per 1000 kilometres, while plug-in hybrids will need to pay $38.

AA's Principal Policy Advisor for Motoring Affairs Terry Collins says the change has been a long time coming.

"The current Government discontinued the previous Government's announcement, so there's been plenty of indication that this was going to happen."

Collins says the money will go straight towards building roads and repairing potholes.
