National Driver Licensing Scheme policy: past reviews & amendments

Administrative Guidelines

As part of our responsibility to maintain nationally consistent regulatory reforms the NTC, in conjunction with States and Territories, developed legislation and Administrative Guidelines for the National Driver Licensing Scheme (NDLS). A maintenance programme is in place to monitor and maintain the reform.

The aim of Administrative Guidelines is to ensure that, as far as practicable, national road transport reforms are implemented consistently across varying local conditions and by different administrators, and their need was recognised during the development of the NDLS.


The NTC proposed amendments to the Supporting Principles of the National Driver Licensing Scheme for approval of the Transport and Infrastructure Council in August 2008.
