Police Certificate' �
� you must submit a recent 'Company
Extract' � All those listed as directors � must � sign section 1 of the
(2) Will an
application from a company be accepted if a director who will never drive the
vehicle is not listed on the form?
(3) Is a company with a non-driving
director banned from owning a bus?
(4) Will the
minister direct that the form be changed to eliminate this excessive and
unnecessary burden on non-driving directors?
STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the
honourable member for some notice of the question.
July 2019 all existing charter vehicle licences will be transitioned to
passenger transport vehicle authorisations. As part of the preparations for the
transition to PTV authorisations, form OM 1.1, ''Application for Omnibus–Charter Vehicle licence'',
is no longer in use and will be removed from the Department of Transport's
website. DOT has been communicating with the on-demand transport industry to
make industry participants aware that the charter vehicle licence applications
are no longer being accepted.
