The easiest way to lose your operator’s licence? Fail to hire a transport manager. Not only will you have wasted the time, trouble and expense invested in the application process, you’ve jeopardised your ability to do business
As part of the conditions of your standard national or international operator’s licence, your company needs to employ a professionally competent person to manage your transport operations. But that doesn’t mean you need to pay the wages for a full-time internal transport manager to manage your small or medium-sized fleet.
Save money and meet your obligations by hiring a freelance transport manager from Transport Audits. A Certificate of Professional Competence holding transport manager who can help you to manage your fleet and fulfill your licence obligations. All the professional input you need at a fraction of the cost of employing a full-time staff member.

If you only hold a restricted O licence, it is not compulsory for you to have a transport manager in place. However, your company will still be subject to the same regulations as holders of standard national and international licences.
To make sure you’re always compliant and stay the right side of important regulations we offer a dedicated consultancy support service. An external CPC administration system for vehicles and drivers including expert advice on operating your business to the Transport Commissioner’s rules and guidelines. Options too on tachograph analysis and reporting.
