Operator’s Licence Solicitors

An operator’s licence is needed for carrying goods associated with a trade or business you operate for hire or reward and when using a vehicle with a gross mass of over 3.5 tonnes. You also need an operator’s licence for pulling a trailer when the gross plated weight of the vehicle and trailer combined exceeds 3.5 tonnes.

There are three types of operator licence:

Restricted Operator’s Licence – this applies to those who carry their own goods or materials for their trade or business, and covers all transport operations within the UK (see our page on restricted licences for further information)

Standard National Operator’s Licence – applies to those who carry their own goods or materials for their trade or business and/ or carries goods for hire or reward. Covers all transport operations in the UK but someone who works in the company must hold a Transport Manager CPC application
