Driver accreditation and health checks

At Shebah we know that every driver takes the responsibility of driving very seriously and so do the states of Victoria, NSW and QLD.

In Victoria, every driver is required to take a completed driver accreditation form and health questionnaire to their GP and then return it to the Taxi Services Commission (TSC). Please remember that you need to take both of these forms to your appointment. We recommend using a bulk billing doctor which you can find with this handy list.

In NSW, you are required to complete a Private Hire Vehicle Driver Authority, which includes an application for authority to drive as well as a medical assessment form (click here if under 60, click here if 60 or over). If you’re under 60 you will not need to visit a doctor to complete your form.

In QLD, you’ll need a passenger transport driver authorisation, this includes taking a completed Private and Commercial Vehicle Driver’s Health Assessment to your doctor for them to retain. Remember to also take a Medical Certificate for Motor Vehicle Driver for the doctor to complete. When completed return the Medical Cerficate to the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

A healthy driver is a safe driver.
