Restricted driver authorisation
Community and courtesy transport operators have the option of:
- hiring drivers with a Department of Transport and Main Roads issued driver authorisation
- issuing their own restricted driver authorisation.
Please note: Restricted driver authorisation is only available to community and courtesy transport drivers.
Restricted driver authorisation is issued by the operator and the driver is limited to driving only for the operator who issued it. The driver can hold however, more than one restricted driver authorisation.
In issuing restricted driver authorisation, the operator takes on responsibility for ensuring their drivers are of an appropriate standard.
If an operator would like to issue their own restricted driver authorisation, they must contact their nearest passenger transport office.
