Public Consultation on Proposed Small Public Service Vehicle (Contingency Measure – Vehicle Supply) (Maximum Permissible Age) Regulations
A Public Consultation on the proposed Small Public Service Vehicle (Contingency Measure – Vehicle Supply) (Maximum Permissible Age) Regulations commenced today. Recognising the current restricted supply environments, NTA proposes the following:
- enactment of the Small Public Service Vehicle (Contingency Measure – Vehicle Supply) Regulations 2022, as a temporary exceptional contingency provision, to permit SPSVs with a current final operation date in 2023 and 2024 to operate for a period beyond the maximum permissible age set out in Regulation 31 of the Taxi Regulation (Small Public Service Vehicle) Regulations 2015 (as may be amended);
- phasing out these temporary exceptional contingency Regulations from 2025 for the oldest extended life vehicles (15 and 20 years) to ensure an easier transition back to those appropriate Regulation 31 SPSV age limits; and
- a review of the suitability of the exceptional contingency Regulations at the end of 2023.
