DCSSDS Motor Vehicle Safety Guidelines – FAQs and Clarifications

In late 2023, the Department of Child Safety, Seniors and Disability Services released the Motor Vehicle Safety – Guidelines for Child Protection Placement Services. These guidelines cover a range of vehicle safety requirements and aim to assist non‑government organisations to develop and refine their own motor vehicle safety processes.

Following release of the guidelines, several questions were raised with PeakCare by child and family sector organisations relating to the interpretation and operationalisation of these guidelines.

In response, PeakCare has facilitated a series of review and clarification activities with the department which has resulted in amendments to the guidelines and the preparation of a list of Frequently Asked Questions and clarifications.

Thank you to all the organisations who contributed questions and feedback as part of this process.
