Choosing a regulated service

There are many regulated travel choices in Victoria to get you to your destination. Regulated taxis and hire cars are available across the state and can be easily identified by their special number plates.

You can easily identify a regulated taxi by its dark green background and the words "Accredited Taxi Service" listed on the number plate.

Regulated hire cars are just as easy to identify because their number plate starts with VHA, VHB or VHC.

Before you travel, make sure you are travelling in a regulated vehicle. You can check the status of a driver and their vehicle at any time on the public register. The public register is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
