Section 19/22 Permits – Guidance update

5 Jan 2021

Section 19 and section 22 permits let organisations charge for not-for-profit transport services without holding a PSV operator’s licence, to do so could involve vehicle impounding and operator prosecution.

 

The updated guidance explains the rules for the permits and how to apply for them, taking into account high court ruling regarding the conditions a community transport operator must meet to be a non-commercial operation. It follows a judicial review of December 2019, where a domestic commercial operator, the BCA, sued the Department due to their local authority tendering contracts.

 

Permit holders are responsible for making sure their vehicles are operated within the law, drivers hold the correct licence and vehicles are properly maintained.  The updated guidance will assist in identifying which permit is required and the conditions of operation.
