Legal Information for Taxi Drivers

In collaboration with Springvale Monash Legal Service, we have created a booklet addressing common legal issues faced by taxi drivers in Victoria.

The booklet covers a range of topics, including:

  • The Driver Agreement/Bailment Agreement
  • Fines and Infringements
  • Runners: Taxi Fare Evasion
  • Accidents and Insurance
  • Compensation: WorkCover Insurance and Victims of Crime
  • Dealing with police, violent behaviour, and sexual assault

You can read the booklet here: Legal Information for Taxi Drivers Booklet. This booklet was last updated in 2019.

This booklet contains general legal information only and is not intended to be legal advice. If you need legal advice please contact your local community legal centre.

If you would like to give feedback on the booklet please email our office and use the subject line: Attn Sophie - Legal Information for Taxi Drivers - booklet feedback.
