Recent ATIS audits have highlighted some operators who either do not have a Vehicle Maintenance Plan or their Vehicle Maintenance Plan is not working.
The newly formed NSW Department of Transport and Infrastructure is following up by conducting audits of these operators.
The type of defects found on the Daily Checks, Driver Reports, ATIS Inspections and Defect Notices will give you an indication if your Vehicle Maintenance Plan is working.
An operator might have perfect Vehicle Maintenance Plan records but the taxi is still being defected. In this case, some aspect of the Vehicle Maintenance Plan is not adequate and the operator needs to review the Vehicle Maintenance Plan.
However, a successful Vehicle Maintenance Plan will help to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy and meets vehicle safety requirements at all times.
ATIS Inspections form a key element in validating an operator’s Vehicle Maintenance Plan.
