WAV (Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle) Taxi Grant Scheme 2024 Now Launched!!

 

The WAV24 Grant Scheme commences on 2nd January 2024.

The last date for the receipt by NTA of applications for the grant scheme is 30 November 2024 or when the funding is expended whichever is earlier.

However, if the allocated funding is committed to payments and provisional offers

to applicants at an earlier date, a waiting list will operate until the closing date is

reached or the funding is spent, whichever is the earlier.

The closing date for the WAV24 Grant Scheme is 13 December 2024, meaning

 

a) the proposed wheelchair accessible vehicle must have passed its initial

suitability test and have received a licence; and

 

b) the proposed driver must have completed an NTA approved course on

disability awareness training specific to SPSVs,

by 13 December 2024 in order to qualify for the Grant.

 

The scheme is available nationwide to:

 

 Persons (individuals or companies) applying for new SPSV licences;

 

 Existing wheelchair accessible vehicle licence holders who wish to

upgrade their current wheelchair accessible vehicle with a replacement

wheelchair accessible vehicle; and

 

 Existing operators who wish to exchange their standard taxi licence for an

wheelchair accessible taxi licence either on conversion of their current vehicle

or the purchase of a wheelchair accessible vehicle (retaining the limited future

right to swap back).

 

The NTA may not consider an application if:

 the Applicant previously received a Grant in respect of the same wheelchair

accessible vehicle;

 

 the wheelchair accessible vehicle which is the subject of the Grant

application, has previously been licenced as a WAV in the name of that

Applicant; or

 

 the wheelchair accessible vehicle which is the subject of the Grant application,

has previously received grant funding within the last three (3) calendar years.
