Registration of a CPV

To be registered as a commercial passenger vehicle (CPV) your vehicle must:

  • be registered in the Northern Territory (NT)
  • meet routine inspection and registration requirements of the MVR
  • be registered under the same name for the owner and commercial vehicle licence holder - for taxis, minibuses, private hire cars, limousines, courtesy vehicles and special function vehicles.

A factory standard or unmodified production vehicle that is fitted with an Australian compliance plate may be approved as a CPV provided the vehicle:

  • complies with the taxi and CPV vehicle maintenance standards and guides for that type of vehicle - for more information read about types of CPV
  • passes the CPV standards inspection.

Modified or imported vehicles are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
