RICHMOND, Va. - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), working with the Virginia Limousine Association and task forces for property and passenger carriers, recently passed new laws to revamp the existing code that regulates commercial operations within the state.

The new code, which went into effect July 1, 2002, addresses several of the task force's concerns and affects all property and passenger motor carriers operating for-hire on an intrastate basis.

For the limousine industry in Virginia, new regulations eliminate "vehicle specific definitions." The type of service and operational requirements are defined specifically and broken down into two categories: Contract Passenger Carrier or Contract Bus Carrier.
