Heavy Vehicle National Law: model laws

Prior to establishing the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), the NTC developed a number of model laws as a coordinated approach to heavy vehicle regulation. These model laws were developed in partnership with industry and government stakeholders.

The HVNL represents an amalgamation of the model laws into one national approach to regulating heavy vehicles.
