Vehicle maintenance standards and guides

Assessment of taxis

All vehicle models are initially assessed for their suitability to operate as a taxi.

A factory standard or unmodified production vehicle that is fitted with an Australian compliance plate may be approved for use provided the vehicle meets all of the following:

  • complies with the in-service maintenance standards for that type of vehicle
  • passes the commercial passenger vehicle standards inspection
  • the intent of the single uniform type inspection (SUTI).

A single uniform type inspection will be required for any:

  • modified or imported vehicle
  • or vehicle without an Australian compliance plate.
