Special Purpose Vehicle licence

Sections of the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Act 2017 relating to commercial passenger vehicle licences are now law. Information about the changes is available on the Industry reforms page.

The below information may be out of date as this page is currently under review.

Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) licences are issued specifically to cater for weddings and tours. These licences are only allowed to operate on a pre-booked basis.

'Weddings' includes taking passengers who are:

  • members of a wedding (e.g. bridal party) travelling during any part of the wedding ceremony/day (bride, groom and assistants to bride and groom)
  • travelling directly to or from a debutante ball or school formal.

SPV licences cost $2,000 (GST inclusive) per vehicle.

SPVs can be identified by the oval windscreen sticker including the vehicle's registration number (pictured below). The colour changes each year.
