Operator’s Licence overview

You need a goods vehicle Operator’s Licence if your business uses goods vehicles above a certain weight.

You will require the need for an O Licence to carry goods in a lorry, van or other vehicle with either the following:

a gross plated weight (which is the maximum weight that the vehicle can have at any one time) of over 3,500 kg

an unladen weight of more than 1,525 kg (where there is no plated weight on that vehicle)

There are three different types of O Licence; what you will need is dependent on the work you do:

Restricted: Carriage of your own goods

Standard: Carriage of your own goods and other peoples in the UK only

Standard International: Carriage of your own goods and other peoples in the UK and in Europe

Potential Operator Licence holders also need to ensure that any drivers they use or employ have the correct licence for that vehicle type and training.

All vehicles that you use should be correctly taxed and kept safe and in good condition at all times to ensure you adhere to the undertakings of the O Licence set by the Traffic Commissioners and the DVSA.
