Not much is different except the number of classes, there seem to be monthly fees to operate a taxi and your license plate has to be validated and get a sticker every so many years.

Would be better if they had a document saying "What's new" so people don't have to read through that whole thing.

speed detection devices mentioned- i guess that would refer to speed guns

also, it looks as though the tint laws would no longer be subject to an officer's discretion but a specified limit as in Sec. 89 (2) d:


(2) Except as otherwise provided in this section, the following vehicles
shall not be used on any road or highway:
(a)
a motor vehicle exceeding the maximum gross weight of
fifteen tonnes;
(b)
a trailer exceeding the maximum gross weight of eight
tonnes;
(c)
a vehicle or trailer not fitted with pneumatic tyres; or
(d)
a vehicle windscreen or any other window of which is fitted
with glass so tinted as to exceed the limit prescribed by
regulations



im guessing they would need a certified device to measure tint levels :|

u know what i feel it should include is graduating driving permits - so that e.g. someone who has a permit for less than 1 or 2 yrs would have certain restrictions like no driving at night on the highway or lower BAC level of alcohol in their system

the alcohol part i agree with, the other part i don't.....it just postpones the period at which they will be new to driving at night or highway etc.....

i would think that 20% visual light transmission should be good for the tint....after all we live in a tropical country....i hope they don't follow the law of some american states where its as light as 70%

as for antiques.....*rubs hands* Hakosuka GTR* :lol:

Without proper reform of the Licensing Department, all of that is another pipe dream.

When my right foot was punctured, I just parked up my car and only used the automatic vehicles until I had full use of it (about a month). Now I'll have to spend time to inform them of such.
(8) Where the holder of a driver’s licence suffers a change in medical condition that may impair his ability to drive or operate a vehicle, he shall inform the Authority of his medical condition forthwith
Defensive driving courses are the new Motor Vehicle Testing Centers.
(9) Notwithstanding subsection (1), a person issued with a driver’s licence shall not drive a vehicle unless that person successfully undergoes a defensive driving course administered by an institution certified by the Authority.
Make sure and renew before you travel else...
< 6months = $350 + license renewal fee

So if you were out the country for an extended period of time and over a year passed, thats $350 plus the $500 renewing fee?

Right now, its just the $500 right?

yup to 350+500 in proposal

can't find it in the current document, but was some grace period.
1 or 3 months. can't remember.

WTF?? So would be illegal to buy a car, and sell it as a sideline?
Prohibition on trading in vehicles 117. (1) Subject to section 131 a person shall not trade in vehicles unless that person is registered with the Authority as a vehicle trader in accordance with this Part and is issued with a Vehicle Trader Registration Certificate. (2) A person who contravenes this section commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine of ten thousand dollars.

Now i'm convinced i'm reading assness.
Restrictions on use of certain equipment on maxi-taxi 177. (1) An operator of a maxi-taxi shall not use a television, video equipment, digital versatile disc player, radio, tape deck, compact disc player, amplifier, equalizer, speaker or other electrical or electronic equipment for the purpose of playing music or other electrically or electronically transmitted sounds or images in a maxi-taxi
