Point to point transport vehicles

Safety check requirements

All vehicles used to provide point to point transport services must have a safety check (previously called a pink slip) at least once a year. This applies to taxis and hire cars, including rideshare, regardless of vehicle age (that is, even if the vehicle is less than 5 years old).

Depending on registration type and vehicle age, vehicle owners may not receive a reminder from Roads and Maritime when the safety check is due.

It is up to service providers and vehicle owners to make sure they complete required safety checks and maintain records.

Vehicle registration requirements

Vehicles used to provide point to point transport services must be appropriately registered.

Taxis need to be registered for taxi use.

Hire vehicles used substantially for private purposes should be registered for private use. Hire vehicles used substantially for business purposes should be registered for business use.
