Applications for an Operator’s Licence

If you’re considering applying for an Operator’s Licence and are unsure as to any aspect of the application, JMW’s team of dedicated road transport solicitors can help you.

We have vast experience and enormous success in applying for all types of licences from Restricted Public Service Vehicle applications to Standard International Goods Vehicle applications and have tackled almost every problem during that time.

We also regularly get involved during the application process when an array of difficulties can arise such as previous licence history, financial standing and transport manager arrangements.   

Ensuring your application is complete and correct upon submission is essential. We are often instructed to act on behalf of operators who are hauled in front of one of the various Traffic Commissioners at a Public Inquiry due to a mistake or an omission on the initial application which was easily avoidable at the outset. Mistakes like these show how vital (and cost effective) it is to ensure your application is complete and correct before submitting it to the Traffic Commissioner’s Office at Leeds.

If you or your business wish to apply for an Operator’s Licence or wish to simply seek advice on whether or not you need an Operator’s Licence then get in touch with the transport experts at JMW for a free consultation on 0800 054 2062.
