The introduction of the Bus Safety Act (2009) and Bus Safety Regulations 2010 brought in a new accreditation process with new regulatory requirements for the operation of bus services in Victoria from the end of 2010. In addition, the Bus Services Act 1995 also carries regulatory requirements of some types of bus operators who undertake bus service contracts in Victoria.

The Monash Institute of Transport Studies, in conjunction with Transport Safety Victoria, the Department of Transport and BusVic, developed an education program, Transport Management Course for Bus Operators, to assist persons to meet the requirements of the Bus Safety Act (2009), Bus Safety Regulations 2010 and Bus Services Act 1995.

Larry was a member of the Board of Management of Kellock Lodge Alexandra Inc. from 1998 to 2009, Chairman of the Board of Management of the Outdoor Education Group in 2009 and 2013, and an Alexandra Football and Netball Club Committee Member from 1982 to 1988.
