Vehicle standards guidelines and type permits
The department, with industry groups and other government authorities, has developed a number of guidelines that allow the operation of some vehicles that do not fully comply with vehicle standards without compromising safety.
Vehicles that have special uses (for example construction vehicles) often require special fittings or equipment specific to their functions that do not comply with the vehicle standards. To be used on roads in Queensland these vehicles require an exemption from the vehicle standards and their use is subject to a number of conditions.
