Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Vic) (FOI Act) gives you the right to access documents about your personal affairs and the activities of government agencies.

You can also ask government agencies to amend or remove incorrect or misleading information they hold about you.

Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria (CPVV) supports these rights by:

  1. making information about our operations available to the public
  2. making all rules and information about our practices readily available to those affected by them
  3. helping the public access documents held us (this access is limited only by the proper application of exceptions and exemptions provided for under the FOI Act), and
  4. delivering an efficient, timely and financially viable process for disclosing information to the public.

Payment of the application fee can be made by cheque, payable to Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria and forwarded to the above address.
