Insurance requirements

Vehicle Insurance 

(Clause 22 Passenger Transport Regulation) 

(a) An accredited operator (unless otherwise advised by written notice by RMS) must ensure that there is maintained one or more policies of insurance providing cover of at least $5,000,000 for each bus used to provide the service against liability in respect of damage to property caused by or arising out of the use of the bus. 
(b) The policies must be issued by a corporation authorised under the Insurance Act 1973 of the Commonwealth to carry on insurance business. 
(c) An accredited operator must provide an authorised officer, on request, with evidence that the policies of insurance are current. 

Operators who borrow or rent buses, rather than own them, are also to ensure that the requisite insurance policies are held.

The operator must provide an authorised officer, on request, with evidence that the operator’s policies of insurance are current.
