Barriers to the safe use of innovative vehicles and mobility devices

This project aims to address the issues surrounding the safe and legal use of new and innovative personal-use and mobility devices.
The current regulatory framework does not provide for the use of new and innovative personal-use devices that are readily available for sale today as they do not necessarily fit within existing vehicle classification.
This also affects individuals that require the use of mobility devices due technical restrictions set out in the Australian Road Rules.
Consultation on our issues paper closed on 28 February 2019.
We are preparing a consultation regulation impact statement for release later this year.
