Application process

Due to changes to the personalised transport industry in Queensland, which were introduced on 5 September 2016, the 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.

Transfer process

Transfer

You must transfer to a person who holds an operator accreditation for limousine services, and you must advise the transfer of the licence to the Department within 14 days using the appropriate form. You can obtain copies of the transfer form from your regional office.

When a taxi licence or limousine licence in Queensland is transferred or agreed to be transferred, you are required to pay transfer duty. Information on transfer duty can be obtained on the Office of State Revenue (OSR) website.

Additional information

Due to changes to the personalised transport industry in Queensland, which were introduced in 2016, no new limousine service licences will be released. Existing perpetual limousine service licences will be retained and will allow licence holders to provide a pre-booked service in an approved vehicle. Existing rights to access priority lanes, liquor exemptions and the right to advertise a limousine service will also be retained. Vehicle requirements will be streamlined and some current prescribed legislative provisions removed.
