Key requirements to operate as an independent service provider

Vehicle owner responsibilities

CPV services in Victoria are guided by the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Regulations 2018 (the regulations) and the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Act 2017 (the Act). Vehicle owners and booking service providers must understand and meet their obligations under the regulations and the Act. Requirements that apply now, or will be introduced shortly, include record keeping, consumer protections, safety duties, incident notifications and complaints management. To view the regulations and the Act visit the acts and regulations page.

Vehicles providing unbooked services (taxis) require:

  • a fare calculation device (taximeter).
  • a CPVV approved security camera (metropolitan/urban/large regional only).
  • tactile signs fitted next to door handles.
  • electronic payment terminal (for MPTP transactions) – see above
  • taxi number plates (issued by VicRoads).
