Be a driver | NSW Taxi Council
Do you have the right to become a taxi in NSW? You must fulfil all of the following requirements to become a new taxi rider in urban areas: Medical suitability to operate a personal transportation vehicule. The NSW service determines this. University of Western Sydney now offers NSW government approved evaluation testing specifically for Sydney taxi drivers (applicants who possess an Australian/British/North American/Canadian pass or who have graduated from a Higher School Certificate or Tertiary Degree where the course and evaluations were held in English may be exempted from this requirement).
Advanced education for those qualifying for dispensation may be necessary at the NSW Taxi Council's sole discretion regarding board-ing teams and executive board. Once you fulfil these conditions, your next step is to fill in an application for registration as a passenger car driver, you must ask for a passenger transport registration code.

When it is considered clinically "fit" and secure to travel a point-to-point transport vehicle, you will be notified by NSW Service personnel that you have been successfully completed and a Passenger Transportation Code (PTP code or T-status) will be added to your existing NSW driver's license in the Roads & Maritime Service System.
It starts with a 'T'. Doesn't mean you can legalize a cab now. However, this only means that you are now entitled to train as a taxi driver in NSW. As soon as this procedure is completed, you can register and make an appointment with the NSW Taxi Council to become an NSW Taxi Driver.
All the information and reservation detail will be sent to you when you make your first reservation with the NSW Taxi Council - we will make your reservation when you arrive. You' ll be placed in a group and will go through a comprehensive course that covers all taxi travel issues from After Sales Services, the next stages with carriers and network, and the application of all security measures to make sure you comply with the new rules and tariffs.
Would you like to become a chauffeur outside the Sydney Underground area? The same system has been introduced for most of NSW's regions. You are not supposed to be travelling all the way to Sydney to become a taxi operator, so we have implemented the same safety management system for our taxi companies in the countries.
To find out how you can become a taxi operator in NSW country regions, please call your nearest taxi office or the NSW Taxi Council on 02 9332 1266. Land Taxi Companies Connected networks (CTOA members) have remote control via an on-line gateway to the NSW Taxi Council Taxi Driver application, so we can make sure that all new taxiers, both in the national and metro areas, can board the new more secure system.
Taking a taxi is different from other occupations because taxi riders have a great deal of flexibility to monitor how, when and where they work. NSW Taxi Council recently spoke to taxi riders about why they like to drive a taxi and the benefits of becoming a taxi rider. Commentaries from riders in various parts of NSW confirm that taxi career can offer many benefits and are suitable for many individuals for a variety of purposes.
In particular, there is a limited number of cabs, so riders have good chances of achieving consistently and sustainably high yields in the most secure working environments available. Every taxi in NSW who had a "Driver Authority" (now known as your driving licence) before 1 November 2017 will move to the new Point to Point transport portal automatic.
In addition, such riders shall make sure that their identity document is always visibly present in the car for their customers during the journey. Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has authorised riders to retain their existing identity documents, provided that each taxi rider in NSW has removed the RMS emblem from the top of their identity document.
Please be careful not to remove the wheelchair label from your WATS membership if you are a WATS rider. To comply with the new legislation, please make sure that you have done this before you start your taxi journey on Wednesday 1 November 2017, starting at noon. Please refer to your taxi network, which is now known as your taxi service provider, for further information on these changes.
Leaflets are available on the changes to taxi riders in NSW. In this issue, we write to the latest taxi, car rental and tourism car owners as they move to the new point-to-point traffic regulation environment. As of November 1, 2017, the driving authority of taxi, personal car and tour operators will no longer be needed.
Instead, taxi and reservation services may require a new driving licence identification for passenger transport in the driver's licence log. Driving licences for passenger transport will make it easier for operators and manufacturers to prove that they fulfil their own security obligations. Those who have a taxi, a car for rent or a tourism driving licence at their disposal at noon on 31 October 2017 will have the new legal system applied to them by adding a passenger transport number to their driving licence.
These include prolonged driving authorisations which have an old expiration date. They will receive mail from 20 October 2017. Now a new leaflet for up-to-date riders and new security control and car registry needs are available on the Roads and Maritime website. In order to find this from the homepage, choose'Business & Industry', then'Point to Point Transport' or go directly to the website of the Point to Point Commission here.
