To meet Victorian Government rideshare regulation, drivers are required to hold a Hire Car Licence or Commercial Passenger Vehicle number issued by the CPVV (Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria). This ensures the vehicle is eligible to be used for commercial passenger vehicle services.
If you are the owner of the registered vehicle and don’t have a Hire Car Licence or Commercial Passenger Vehicle number, you can apply online.
The CPVV charges a $53.80 annual administration fee and can take up to several hours before you receive a confirmation email.
Note: If you share the vehicle with someone and the owner has one, then you don’t need to apply.
