Digital licences linked to Qld transport infringement app

Inspectors from Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads have been issuing thousands of compliance forms using a mobile app that now provides access to real-time registration and licensing data.

Bart Mellish: latest digital technology

Queensland’s transport inspectors have broad powers to intercept and examine vehicles, including heavy vehicles, and can issue on the sport fines for a range of offences and report matters for court action.

The Queensland Compliance Information System (QCIS) replaced manual systems from 2019.

According to the app’s supplier,  Motorola Solutions, the application has been enhanced with the state’s new digital licence app, which can be used to quickly identify drivers.

Inspectors are now recording up to 3,000 vehicle intercepts and issuing 1,000 compliance forms a month, including fines, which Motorola says is a ‘sharp rise’ from pre-QCIS rollout.

“By equipping Queensland’s road inspectors with the latest digital technology, they can better uphold the state’s road regulations and compliance requirements which ultimately benefits all road users in our state,” transport and digital services minister Bart Mellish said in a statement.

The QCIS operates on iPads an a web management portal, and is integrated with compliance databases for heavy, passenger and transport vehicles.

Motorola also provides safety and compliance technology for the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and WA Police.

  1. If you are driving a registered vehicle and a valid licence, then that’s great. If not, then I don’t want you on the road driving next to me.
