Passenger service vehicle training
Passenger service vehicles (PSVs) are:
- vehicles used in a passenger service (no matter how many seating positions they might have)
- vehicles with more than 12 seating positions (whether they're used for hire or reward or not)
- heavy motor vehicles with more than nine seating positions – for vehicle design and standards purposes (whether they’re used for hire or reward or not).
PSVs are vehicles used in an operation where carrying passengers is an integral part of the business. The most obvious passenger service vehicles are buses, taxis and shuttles.
Rental vehicles are PSVs only if they have more than 12 seating positions, or if they're hired by a passenger service licence holder to operate as a PSV.
