Taxi Number Plates

Number plates for Taxi's may only be issued to persons holding written
authority from the Victorian Taxi Directorate to allow a vehicle to be
registered as a taxi cab.

Once issued, the plates must remain on the vehicle to which they are
assigned until they are cancelled, a change of number is effected, or
the plates are transferred to another vehicle.

The plates may only be assigned to a vehicle that is registered in the
name of the owner of the taxi licence.

No fee is payable when plates are transferred from a taxi cab to
another taxi or a vehicle being registered as a taxi.

Taxi plates may only be assigned to a taxi owned by the same person or
incorporated body as the vehicle to which the plates were originally
assigned. Any previous number plates assigned to the vehicle must be
returned to VicRoads or destroyed.

Taxi plates are issued to identify vehicles licensed by the Taxi
Directorate to operate a taxi service. Taxi plates differ according to
the intended location of operation of the taxi and the type of licence
granted.

The taxi plate slogan is 'ACCREDITED TAXI SERVICE' across the top of
the plate and 'VIC' running vertically along the left side of the
plate.

Taxi plates have white characters on a green reflective background
with a gold southern cross design as the separator between the letters
and numbers.
