In NSW, it is illegal for a driver to refuse to carry a passenger who is accompanied by a guide dog or other assistance animal.

When you carry a Guide Dog, follow these simple tips:

  1. Do not separate the dog from his/her owner - the passenger usually sits in front seat with the guide dog on the floor.
  2. Do not pat the dog or try to feed it, and do not give the dog any instructions.
  3. Assist the passenger only if he/she requests additional help.
  4. Remember - a passenger with a guide dog will never do a runner!
