A List of changes and screenshot preview package is also available (includes 1 March 2016 amendment).

The 1 March 2016 VIRM amendments were issued to correct a discrepancy between VIRM: In-service certification with the Land Transport Rule: Seatbelts and Seatbelt Anchorages 2002. However, a result of the amendment is that it immediately invalidated certain existing motorhome seatbelts, which was not the intent of the amendment.

As a result of the repercussions, the Transport Agency is working to effect a Rule change that will clarify the intent of the Rule and not disadvantage owners of existing motorhomes. In the meantime, please refer to the modified VIRM amendments, which will be retroactively effective 1 March 2016.


Change description

General vehicles

7-5 Seatbelts and seatbelt anchorages

  • Clarification of motorhome seatbelt requirements for rear seating positions.
