Operator's licence applications

Whether you are making an application for a new operator’s licence, or applying to vary an existing licence, our road transport solicitors can assist. For advice from one of our specialist operator's licence lawyers, please call us on 01616 966 229.

Our specialist road transport solicitors can advise you on the fundamental considerations for an operator’s licence, for example the centre you will be operating from, employment of a transport manager and their required accreditations, the cost of making an application and the funds you need to have in place.

Our specialist lawyers can also draw upon widespread experience of public inquiries and can advise on whether issues with your application are likely to raise concerns within the relevant office of the traffic commissioner. We can advise on what steps can be taken to avoid being ultimately called to public inquiry, or what should be done to prepare for a public inquiry if this appears to be inevitable.
