The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure’s (DPTI) has announced that it will not award a contract for Stage Two of the Heavy Vehicle Inspection Scheme (HVIS), and has discontinued the implementation of Stage Two for the periodic inspection of heavy vehicles.
If implemented, this scheme would have required certain heavy vehicles of more than 4.5 tonnes to undergo inspections every two years once they reach four years from the date of manufacture and inspected annually once they reach 10 years since manufacture.
Change of ownership inspections will remain to ensure compliance with heavy vehicle standards.
From 1 July 2020, Change of Ownership Inspection services will be provided at DPTI’s metropolitan and regional locations, as they are currently provided for road worthy inspections, clearing defects and various other inspection services.
GPSA will continue to hold workshops as part of its Roadworthy Heavy Vehicles… Made Easy! campaign, designed to educate South Australian primary producers about heavy vehicle standards and their obligations under the National Heavy Vehicle Inspection Manual.
