Roads and Maritime Services provides services and information for drivers and operators of buses and coaches. We also conduct a number of transport related licensing and accreditation activities, and administer driver authorisation for a range of vehicles.

A new report has been released: Bus roadworthiness: Trends and patterns 2009-2014 (PDF, 353Kb). The report provides information to industry on the safety and roadworthiness of buses along with trends and improvements to vehicle maintenance standards.


All drivers of public passenger bus, motorcycle and 4-wheel drive tour vehicles must be authorised under the Passenger Transport Act 1990.
