As a result of growing community demand for taxi services the Victorian government has decided the time is right to begin the release of 330 wheelchair accessible taxi licences to improve transport services in greater Melbourne. The new licences will authorise operation in either the metropolitan or the outer-suburban taxi-cab zone.

With the help of 13CABS you can seize this golden opportunity that doesn't present itself too often. Competition for the new licences will be hotly contested so act now to secure a future in the cab industry.


Applications are now open for the much needed 330 wheelchair accessible taxi licences. Interested parties should contact 13CABS immediately for assistance with preparing their applications. Applications close  at 4.30pm on Monday 13 September 2010.

Cabs are our business and we want them to be yours too. 13CABS has a team of seasoned professionals well versed in all aspects of preparing taxi licence applications to the meticulous VTD specifications. Our staff are available to assist you every step of the way so that your taxi licence application is professionally presented and demands serious consideration.

We know applying for a taxi licence can be a rigorous and sometimes daunting process for some and should not be approached lightly. Prospective applicants don't need to have existing accreditation although it is stipulated that accreditation must be obtained before the provision of the licence can be made.

Licence fees apply to each conventional fixed-term or wheelchair accessible licence, although the fee is not fixed but subject to a competitive tender process and licences will be awarded to the winning bids. Wheelchair accessible licences will be awarded to winning bidders for the term of 10 years.

Please contact Greg Hardeman, 13CABS Fleet Services Manager on 9277 3450 to discuss what 13CABS can do to assist you with your taxi licence application. To obtain a complete Application Pack please visit 13CABS offices at Oakleigh, North Melbourne or Preston or contact the Victorian Taxi Directorate on 1800 638 802.
