The vehicle registration needs the correct Motor Vehicle Injury Insurance (formerly compulsory third party insurance) class appropriate for your vehicle type and area of operation. The applicable insurance classes are:
- 3(a) for charter vehicles licensed to carry eight or more people normally operating within the 40 kilometre radius of the GPO Perth
- 3(b) for charter vehicles licensed to carry eight or more people normally operating outside the 40 kilometre radius of the GPO Perth
- 3(f) for charter vehicles licensed to carry less than eight people.
To update your insurance class you will need to complete the Statutory Declaration of Motor Injury Insurance Class (ODT 5) form.
Once you have received pre-approval for your CV application you will be required to have your vehicle inspected. When your vehicle
has passed the vehicle examination, you will be automatically issued with a CV licence account, which contains your operating conditions.
Examination fees will vary depending on your vehicle type.
All new Charter Vehicle licence applicants will have the option to apply for new CV plates or continue to operate with the current plate type attached to their vehicle.
New applicants after 1 July 2016 are required to complete an Application for a Charter Vehicle Licence Plate (ODT 12) form and pay a fee for the application of CV plates. Existing holders of Omnibus licences are not required to pay application fees if applications are made prior to 1 May 2017.
