Current consultation

CPVV Issues paper - Assessing the framework for training drivers of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles

We’re currently reviewing the driver education processes commercial passenger vehicle drivers in Victoria are required to complete and pass to operate Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles.

This is so we can ensure driver training meets the needs of passengers that travel in a wheelchair or mobility scooter.

We’ve produced an issues paper ‘Assessing the framework for training drivers of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles’, on which, we would like your feedback.

Please read our issues paper and provide us with your feedback in our survey. There are two questions in our survey on WAV-driver-training and you can provide us with as much or as little information as you like in response.

If you would like to make a more formal, or a longer submission, please email policy@cpv.vic.go.au.

The consultation closes at 5.00pm on Friday, 6 December 2019.

Following the consultation

In 2020, we will prepare a proposed W endorsement framework paper that factors in feedback received from our Issues paper consultation.

The proposed framework will be consulted on, with a final W endorsement framework paper with any supporting documentation required. Again, the final paper will have factored in all feedback on the proposed W endorsement framework paper.

For further information on the review, please contact policy@cpv.vic.go.au.

Engaging with the CPV industry

Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria (CPVV) is the Victorian regulator of the commercial passenger vehicle industry.

We keep our stakeholders informed and up-to-date on things that may affect them.

The best way to keep updated is through our eNewsletter. If you’re not already a subscriber, register your details and we'll keep you informed. We also produce a Booking Service Provider (BSP) Bulletin, which goes out to all register BSPs.

In addition to our ongoing communication and engagement channels, we run an Industry Implementation Group (IIG). This group provides valuable input into the way we deliver industry reforms, projects or key initiatives and CPVV’s strategic objectives of:

  • safety
  • accessibility
  • customer focussed
  • competition
  • being an effective regulator.

IIG membership consists of representatives from the commercial passenger vehicle industry including those from the taxi, hire car and rideshare sectors.

This group is designed to assist us in delivering on our objectives and in implementing key industry changes. While the IIG provides significant input into matters, it is not a decision-making body.

Industry Implementation Group

The IIG specifically focuses on key industry changes being implemented following the introduction of the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Act 2017.

The key functions of the IIG are to:

  • provide feedback that reflects the views of their industry, members or representative body in relation to the commercial passenger vehicle industry
  • provide information to us in relation to industry changes.

It also provides an opportunity for members to work closely with us to:

  • aid in the efficient delivery of the reforms
  • test assumptions and proposals
  • workshop ideas and possible solutions.
