Traffic Commissioners revamp Goods Vehicle Operator Licensing Guide

The Goods Vehicle Operator Licensing Guide has been revised and updated to reflect changes in legislation and brought into line with accessibility criteria.

The Traffic Commissioners for Great Britain have published an updated version of the guide which gives an overview of how the licensing system works for operators of goods vehicles.

It is intended to give a summary of operator licensing and to direct users to where further advice may be available.

This updated guidance provides clarification of modern rules and regulations and adheres to current accessibility criteria. The new guide remains fully printable for those who choose to do so.

It includes details on what is necessary in order to hold an operator’s licence, how to apply for a licence, managing a licence, the role and responsibilities of transport managers and more.

The guide can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/goods-vehicle-operator-licensing-guide

Traffic commissioners are the regulators of the road transport industry in Great Britain. They are appointed by the Secretary of State for Transport but act independently from Government and the enforcement agencies, for example, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.
