Permanent & Temporary Removal Of Seats From Light Vehicles

When making permanent changes to the seating structures of light vehicles, such as the removal of seats, it is crucial to follow specific regulations and obtain proper approvals.

In many jurisdictions, including Australia, the modification must be approved by an Approved Person (AP), and a Modification Plate must be fitted to the vehicle for documentation and compliance purposes.

The reduction in seating capacity may result in a change of the vehicle category, requiring evidence in the form of a report provided by the certifying Approved Vehicle Examiner (AVE).

It’s essential to consult the approved codes of practice, which can be found in the Queensland Road Vehicle Modification Handbook for light vehicle modification codes.

The process may involve a Simple Inspection and the submission of relevant checklists, such as the LK1 checklist for seating reduction and seat belt removal.

In summary, any modifications affecting seating capacity should adhere to local regulations, involve an approved certifier, and result in the fitting of a Modification Plate to ensure legal compliance.
