Renewing your approved person accreditation

Your approved person accreditation is granted for a period of up to three years and to continue your accreditation, you need to make an application to renew your approved person accreditation.

An application for renewal of your approved person accreditation will be sent to you two months prior to the expiry of your approved person accreditation. It is therefore important that you keep the Approved Person Scheme Administrator informed of your current email and postal address to ensure you receive your approved person renewal application.

Failing to renew your approved person accreditation

If you fail to renew your approved person accreditation, your accreditation will expire and you will no longer be accredited as an approved person. If your approved person accreditation expires, you cannot certify vehicle modifications until your approved person renewal application is approved by us and you have received your approved person accreditation document.

Failing to receive your application for renewal of your approved person accreditation is not an excuse for failing to make an approved person renewal application. It remains your responsibility to ensure your approved person renewal application is made prior to the expiry of your approved person accreditation.

Making an application

To renew your approved person accreditation, you need to:

  • complete an Approved Person Application (form number F1855)
  • if applicable, attach to your application any supporting documents
  • submit your application directly with the Approved Person Scheme Administrator either by:
    • Email: ap@trmr.qld.gov.au
    • Post: Approved Person Scheme Administrator
      Department of Transport and Main Roads
      PO Box 673
      Fortitude Valley Qld 4006

The renewal of your approved person accreditation is subject to a review of your approved person compliance history within the scheme (this includes any relevant infringement notices issued under Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 within the last five years). For further information, refer to Transport and Main Roads’ Suitable Persons Policy.

Application and decision making process

You will be notified in writing of the outcome of your application. If we require further information to support your application, we will contact you by email or telephone. If your application is granted, we will provide you with an approved person accreditation document. If your application is refused, we will provide you with an information notice providing reasons why your application has been refused and your appeal options.
