Written answers (Question to Transport)

Vehicle age limits for small public service vehicles (SPSVs) are a matter for the statutory regulator, the National Transport Authority (NTA).

The Deputy may be aware that, at the start of the pandemic, the NTA extended age limits for vehicles until the end of this year. The NTA is now considering a further extension of age limits to the end of 2021 and is currently conducting a public consultation process on this proposal prior to making a decision.
