Delegations project

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) coordinates a range of access applications from start to finish, liaising directly with industry and road managers to manage applications and issue permits. While the NHVR processes all Class 2 and Class 3 permit applications, we are assisted by state and territory governments in processing some Class 1 permit applications made under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL). The National Operational Strategy and Policy Advisory Group has endorsed the return of all access permit delegations and processing back to the NHVR.

Australian Capital Territory, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria

These jurisdictions have successfully completed the return of Class 1 and Class 3 heavy vehicle access permit processing to the NHVR. These application can now be completed in the NHVR Portal
