The table below provides an overview of the decision.

Timeframe12 months
Approval statusApproved
Implementation statusPartially completed


Require networks to issue identity cards to drivers and take reasonable steps to monitor who the actual driver is.

The Northern Territory (NT) Government, in consultation with industry, will further develop current measures for issuing Commercial Passenger Vehicle Identity cards (CPV ID).

Alternate card designs will be developed with industry.

Once implemented, the NT Government will discontinue issuing Identity cards. This is reliant on the amendment of the Commercial Passenger (Road) Transport Act 1991.


All CPV networks in the NT have been provided with their individual templates to immediately begin issuing their own CPV ID cards.

Independent operators are still required to contact the NT Government for their CPV ID cards until further notice.
