Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria (CPVV) is seeking feedback on their new framework for training and assessing drivers of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) by Friday, 16 October 2020.

The new proposed framework for training and assessing drivers of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles was developed following consultation on CPVV’s 2019 issues paper [PDF].

  • CPVV taking a more active role in developing and ensuring the quality and consistency of available training and assessment providers.

Please provide feedback to NDS by Friday 9 October to inform our submission and to CPVV by Friday 16 October 2020.
