WAHVA (Western Australia Heavy Vehicle Accreditation)
In WA, operators of certain types of heavy vehicles must become accredited to gain a permit or notice from Main Roads.
Western Australian Heavy Vehicle Accreditation is mandatory for individuals and organisations that require a permit or notice to perform any transport task as part of a commercial business or for profit within Western Australia, including interstate operators.
Accreditation involves two modules - Fatigue and Vehicle Maintenance, which operators are required to incorporate into their daily work practices.
Accreditation does not exempt operators from complying with other requirements of the Road Traffic Act 1974.
