Taxi Security Cameras in Taxi Cabs


It’s illegal to use a commercial passenger vehicle to provide unbooked services (those hailed or from a rank) in the Melbourne metropolitan and urban and large regional zones if it doesn’t have an approved security camera system that is fully functional. Footage from security cameras can only be downloaded by authorized CPVV officers and is accessed and used to investigate crimes reported to Victoria Police, and is used by us where we have legislated powers.

Commercial passenger vehicles providing unbooked services (taxis) must be fitted with:

  • tactile registration number signs fitted to the outside of passenger doors
  • a compliant fare calculation device (taximeter) and an electronic transaction terminal to allow the processing of Multi Purpose Taxi Program (MPTP) trips.
  • a CPVV approved security camera if the vehicle is operating in the metropolitan,  urban or  large regional zone (camera labels on the interior and exterior of the vehicle are required from a privacy perspective to alert passengers
  • fare information notices, with one notice being fixed to the outside of the vehicle so that it’s clearly visible from the left side, and a second being placed inside the vehicle, so that it can be read clearly by passengers in all seating positions
