    As of 1st October, CPV vehicles (VIC Aus) are required to carry RWC in the car at all times. Uber's Redbook inspections/RWC are acceptable and can be accessed via the Uber app "waybill" link if/when requested.

    Quoting CPV:

    Authorisation of RedBook Inspect Pty Ltd to inspect commercial passenger vehicles

    RedBook Inspect Pty Ltd (RedBook) is authorised to inspect commercial passenger vehicles.

    Commercial passenger vehicle owners have choice about having their vehicles inspected by a VicRoads Licensed Vehicle Tester (LVT), or by a CPVV approved commercial passenger vehicle inspection service provider.

    The RedBook application for approval was evaluated in accordance with the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Inspection Approval Policy (the policy).

    RedBook has four vehicle inspection sites; Port Melbourne, Dandenong South, Tullamarine and Newcomb (Geelong). Vehicle inspections can only take place at approved premises. Redbook may inspect commercial passenger vehicles providing booked and unbooked services, excluding Wheelchair Accessible Taxis.

    This authorisation is for annual vehicle inspections only, as required in the commercial passenger vehicle registration conditions. This authorisation does not apply to vehicles that must be inspected under the LVT network for change of vehicle ownership, or new registration purposes as required by VicRoads.

    If this is the case, Uber needs to now allow independent RWC's to be an annual vehicle inspection as per their policies, or else people are going to have their vehicles inspected twice, with a very high probability of discrepancies between the two inspections.
