Vehicle standards guidelines

The department, with industry groups and other government authorities, has developed Safe Movement 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. These vehicles need an exemption to be used on Queensland roads as well as comply with specific conditions.
