Taxi and passenger transport

Vehicle standards and signage

All vehicles used for a passenger transport service in South Australia need to meet road safety and basic amenity standards as required by current legislation and by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI).

Vehicles must be checked at approved vehicle inspection stations prior to being used as passenger transport vehicles. To ensure they continue to meet the required standards, taxis must have six-monthly inspections, and chauffeur, special purpose and rideshare vehicles must have annual inspections.

Additional requirements for taxis include audio and video recording in all vehicles and the use of meters for fares.

Signage

All passenger vehicles must display the following signs:

  • booking service or operator details
  • vehicle inspection sticker on the windscreen front left hand corner.
.

Private plated vehicles, such as rideshare, must display removable identification signage issued by their booking service.

This must be displayed on the bottom right hand side of the back window while in service.

If you do not have a removable identification sign from your booking service, a blue PV sign issued by DPTI is to be displayed on the bottom right hand side of the back window while in service.
