Professional driving tasks

If you drive for work and need to interact with a device to do certain tasks then specific professional driving tasks will be permitted under the rules.

These tasks include:

  • accepting or rejecting a job (e.g., rideshare, taxi or delivery drivers);
  • gathering information (e.g., freight, delivery or bus drivers gathering information about upcoming journeys, pick-ups or drop-offs);
  • maintaining security (e.g., monitoring passengers or livestock in a vehicle);
  • maintaining safety;
  • facilitating passenger movement (e.g. operating the doors of a bus).

These professional driving tasks will be permitted under the rules, provided you don’t scroll or enter information, text, numbers or symbols on the device.

If you need to scroll or enter information on the device, then you will need to pull over and park first.
