Possibly not where you are.. but

"registrable light motor vehicle means a motor vehicle that is 
registrable and has a tare mass that is not greater than 2,794 kilograms."

 From https://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/#/view/regulation/2017/451/full

And also in other traffic legislation in Australia...

In the UK?

"(h)the manner in which the tare weight of road vehicles, or of road 
vehicles of any particular class or description is to be determined. "
from https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1985/72
