What's this about?

The draft Tow Truck Industry Regulation 2019 will replace the Tow Truck Industry Regulation 2008, which will be repealed on 1 September 2020.

The proposed regulation seeks to:

  • protect consumers by ensuring industry complies with the requirement to provide relevant information to motorists
  • reduce red tape for workers, for example by removing unnecessary automatic licence cancellation
  • update penalties for consistency and in line with the nature of the offence, which is fairer for both the consumer and the industry.
