Requirements to provide a service in a limousine in Queensland

To provide a service in a limousine you will need to hold a driver's authorisation. You must also:

  • ensure your vehicle is appropriately registered, roadworthy and has Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance
  • ensure the vehicle has a certificate of inspection (COI), unless exempt
  • carry a copy of the limousine service licence for the vehicle—this may be in either printed or in an electronic format (for example, on a smart phone) but must be presentable at all times
  • provide an itemised receipt of the fare if requested by a customer.

Checking currency and class of driver authorisation

The driver authorisation public register, previously known as the Passenger Transport Driver Authorisation System (PTDAS), is a free online service that allows the currency and classes of driver authorisation to be checked.

The register does not contain any personal information and only confirms the currency and classes of a driver authorisation number.
