Conversion of Peak Service & GMTLR licences

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The below information may be out of date as this page is currently under review.

The TSC is preparing to formally implement the option for eligible Peak Service and GMTLR (Greater Melbourne Taxi Licence Release - 10 year fixed term) licence holders to apply to convert to an 'as of right' annual taxi licence, as outlined in the taxi industry inquiry recommendation 1.3.

The Orders under which eligible licences were granted are specified in section 146AAA(2) of the Transport (Compliance and Miscellaneous) Act 1983. The application for conversion will involve the cancellation of the current licence and the issue of a new 'as of right' licence.

This process is optional, it is up to the licence holder to decide ifthey want to convert their licence.

Feedback

The TSC proposes that the fee for converting a licence will be the same as the taxi licence application fee, which is currently $172.40. If applicable, credits on paid licence fees will be transferred to the new annual licence fees as outlined in the Transport (Compliance and Miscellaneous) Act 1983.

Feedback regarding this proposed fee for converting a licence has now closed.
