VHA Cars are commercial vehicles just like taxis and rideshare registered by the Commercial Passengers Vehicles Victoria (CPVV). These cars are high end ultramodern vehicles driven by very skilled and experienced drivers.

VHA Car –  Drivers and Requirements

Victorian Hire Cars can only be driven by accredited drivers who need to get driver accreditation from Commercial Passengers Vehicles Victoria and renew every three years.
Applicants must pass necessary medical and police checks to be eligible to be part of the industry and drive these cars.

What does VHA/B/C means?

Historically VHA cars in Melbourne had the registration number plates beginning with VHA or VHB (for metropolitan operators) and VHC (for country side operators) followed by three numericals.
