The National Pilot Vehicle Drivers Association Inc. was formed around 1991, following a meeting with the then Federal Minister of Transport. The Minister indicated that to achieve the results that we where seeking on a National level it would be better if a National Association was formed as the Government was and still is working towards National uniformity.
