The National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for the regulation of the small public service vehicle (SPSV) industry under the provisions of the Public Transport Regulation Act, 2009. Section 15 of the Taxi Regulation Act, 2013 provides for an applicant or holder of a SPSV licence to nominate a representative who may apply to the NTA as the licensing authority, to continue to operate the licence in the event of his or her death. The nominated representative can, within 3 months of the death of the licence holder, make an application to the NTA to continue to operate the licence until expiry and to apply for its renewal upon its expiry.
