You will require this licence if you intend to own a road vehicle (such as a truck or van) that is used to transport dangerous goods. A vehicle must be licensed to transport dangerous goods if it carries either:
- more than 500 kilograms of dangerous goods in a receptacle (container)
- dangerous goods in a receptacle with a capacity of more than 500 litres.
Each vehicle needs to be licensed according to the class of dangerous goods carried. A vehicle licence is required for the transport of dangerous goods, such as in a tank vehicle, in demountable tanks, in intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) including pallet boxes or bulk bags, or for solid dangerous goods, in bins or hoppers on the vehicles.
