If you’re only going to be transporting your own goods, you only need a restricted operator’s licence.
A restricted operator’s licence means that you’re free to carry your own goods and equipment throughout the UK and Europe without having to employ a transport manager (although it is recommended that you do). Restricted O licences also require much lower levels of turnover and financial stability.
Note: As a restricted licence holder you can’t transport third-party goods for hire or reward.
Typically this kind of licence is used by self-employed tradespeople and sole traders who only need to deliver their own products to clients, or carry their own equipment. Restricted operator’s licence holders could include:
Our £199 fixed fee package gives you all you need to apply for your restricted operator’s licence. And because everything is prepared by professional experts it’s much more likely your application will be approved quickly.
This package includes:
Our experts will explain how the O licence works, discuss your ongoing responsibilities and examine any issues relating to previous ownership or management – licences you may have already held, past prosecutions, bankruptcies.
We will put together all the necessary paperwork to give you the best chance of a successful application. We’ll prepare maintenance agreements, consent letters and even write a specially worded Public Notice for your local paper. The Traffic Commissioner’s Office will be kept fully informed at every stage of your application before all relevant documents and paperwork are finally checked and submitted.
After your application has been successful and your licence has been granted, we will ensure that you are registered for online self-service with the Traffic Area Network.
We will also discuss your ongoing requirements, and if necessary can advise you on the placement of a freelance Transport Manager for continued compliance.
Please note: Our fixed fee package does not include application and licence fees payable to the Traffic Commission, or the costs of your mandatory public notice.
