My passenger vehicle is registered as a Commercial Vehicle with Queensland Transport. Does this automatically qualify me to park in a Commercial Vehicle loading zone?

No, you still need a Commercial Vehicle parking permit from Cairns Regional Council. Sedans, station wagons and motorcycles are not permitted to park in a Commercial Loading Zone unless a permit has been issued by Council, even if the vehicle is registered as a Commercial Vehicle with Queensland Transport. The only vehicles that do not require a Council permit are utilities (including dual cabs), panel vans and vans without rear passenger seats and/or seat belts.
