‘O’ (Operator’s) Licence Applications & Variations
Did you know that the majority of Operator’s Licence applications submitted to the Central Licensing Unit in Leeds are in some way incorrect?
Most people who apply for a operator’s licence are subject to some strict deadlines themselves. Often they been promised work but cannot operate until their licence is in place and they risk losing that work if the licence is not granted quickly.
Of course, completing an application incorrectly will cause delay to the granting of the operator licence which will ultimately cost the business money and could even mean that there is no work available by the time the licence is granted.
Regulation within the transport industry is strict and many people do not realise the significance of what is written on the application form. They are not sure what information they need to disclose and how much detail to include. If they get it wrong, it will delay their application, and at worst it could mean that their operator licence application is refused.
Often people try to deal with an application themselves only to receive a letter from the central licensing unit requesting further information. Sometimes they will be requested to provide information in relation to the proposed transport manager or next relation as to why the application has not been completed correctly. Answering queries in the right way can make the difference between the licence being granted or the application being refused.
