Due to changes to the personalised transport industry in Queensland, which were introduced on 5 September 2016, Government will not be releasing any new limousine service licences, including special purpose limousine service licences.

From September 2017, limousine service licences will continue to be renewable for periods of up to five years, continue to be transferable and able to be leased.
