Guide - How to Apply for an Operator's Licence and More - Transport Manager Available

We now have a more detailed, complete and better organised guide to applying for an operator's licence at this link: TransportForum.com/guide-olicence


Rates and other details about container haulage work can be viewed and downloaded here:
Loads are available out of Felixstowe, London-Tilbury, Southampton, all year round, heading to all areas of the UK.

You don't need to have any vehicles before you apply for an operator's licence and it doesn't matter how your will obtain your vehicles later (buy, hire, lease, rent, borrow or by any other means). Everything in this guide still applies in the same way.

Video: Bank Statement Requirements for Operator's Licenses
Financial requirements for an Operator's licence (Financial Standing):
Trailers don't count as 'vehicles' for the purposes of calculating your financial requirements. So if you are applying for 1 vehicle and 1 trailer, that's counted only as 1 vehicle and you need to have £8,000 on your bank account.

How to advertise your new application for an O-licence - Public Notice instructions with a template:
Always put the same number of trailers as the number of vehicles in your public notice and the application (even if you don't need trailers). Upload both the front page and the entire page with your public notice to your application under: "Operating centres and authorisations" → Click on the address of your operating centre → Click "Upload" at the bottom of the page.

Transport manager's duties and responsibilities (compliance only). See Section 13a of the TM1 form:
