New South Wales Taxi Camera Requirements

Regulated safety standards apply to taxi service providers, booking service providers, affiliated providers, taxi licence holders, owners of taxis and drivers of those taxis. These standards include having appropriate insurance, ensuring drivers are qualified, fitting certain equipment, and maintaining the vehicle to a high standard. 

​The Passenger Transport Regulation 2007 requires that taxi operators must ensure that their taxis are fitted with an approved security camera system. This is for the safety and security of both drivers and passengers, and footage can be accessed in the event of a serious incident.

The purpose of a taxi’s security camera system is to record incidents in taxis for investigative purposes only - footage of everyday passenger trips are not viewed or retained by any person.​

Transport Security Cameras' Taxi Security Kit with CCC Mark 1 cameras is state approved and fit for use in taxis within Sydney and New South Wales.
