Restricted Operators Licence Application
O Licence for Skip Hire Firms, Scaffolders, Caterers and Shopfitters

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.

Who Uses a Restricted Operator’s Licence?

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:

  • Scaffolders
  • Skip hire companies
  • Caterers
  • Shopfitters
