Can I use my taxi tag in a personal vehicle or motor hire vehicle?
No, taxi tags can't be used in personal vehicles, motor hire vehicles or ride share vehicles such as Uber. Motor hire vehicles have licence plates beginning with VHA, VHB or VHC.
Taxi tags can only be used in taxi-plated vehicles registered by the Taxi Services Commission. Taxi licence plate numbers are prefixed by:
- M (Metropolitan)
- C (Country)
- U (Urban Taxi)
- ST (Substitute Taxi)
- R (Rural Taxi)
- or suffixed by PS (Peak Services Taxi)
