This licence permits an accredited operator to operate a Private Hire Car (PHC) in the Northern Territory.
A PHC is a vehicle that can carry up to eight passengers and is used with the services of a driver for the carriage of fare-paying passengers. A PHC is only permitted to accept pre-booked hiring unless the hiring commences from a designated PHC rank or from an approved function/event.
In-service private hire cars must not be older than nine years of age.
A $1 per trip levy applies to all point-to-point transport services (taxis, minibuses, private hire cars and rideshare). The levy must be paid to the NT Government by the operator on a monthly basis.
