"O" Licenses and Requirements

ST&L Consultancy in Moulsoe, Milton Keynes will guide you through the different types of licenses and the requirements to acquire these. If you have any questions about operator licence applications or variations, please do not hesitate to call us.

Which Licence?

Restricted Operators’ Licence

This is the licence you will need if you are transporting goods owned by you for commercial gain. Unlike the other types of Operators licences there is no requirement to employ a nominated Transport Manager however you do need to have a nominated "responsible person" and you will still need to adhere to the other requirements of a restricted licence .Therefore it is wise to gain the services of a nominated responsible and competent person to monitor your compliance, which we have at ST&L Consultancy. There is also a difference in the financial standing levels compared to the other licences. This can be seen below under financial standings.
