NHVR begins delivering heavy vehicle safety services in Queensland

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) will assume responsibility for the delivery of heavy vehicle on-road compliance and enforcement services in Queensland, including Programmed Vehicle Inspections (PVI), from 20 April 2024.

Minister for Transport and Main Roads, the Hon. Bart Mellish, said the transition of services in Queensland promises a streamlined approach to regulation across Australia.

“The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has been working closely with the NHVR to ensure a seamless transition of heavy vehicle regulatory services, to establish a safer road network in Queensland,” Minister Mellish said.

“This marks the end of a significant reform program, and is a step forward for industry, who now have a single point of interaction for consistent information about the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) and any issues they face as drivers or businesses.

“We look forward to the productivity and safety benefits of having a single regulator for the heavy vehicle industry, with Queensland the final participating jurisdiction to transfer these regulatory services to the NHVR.

“By having a borderless operating model, the NHVR will be able to address the greatest risks on our roads, improving safety for everyone.”
