This type of licence is the one required for organisations which only carry own goods in the course of their business. The rules allow a little flexibility in that restricted licence holders are not limited to just carrying goods that they might have produced themselves. They may also bring in their own raw materials for processing and vehicles belonging to a holding company may carry the goods of a subsidiary company (and vice versa). A restricted licence will allow the carriage of such “own account” goods both within the UK and abroad
This licence allows the carriage of goods for hire and reward in the UK. Even if goods are only occasionally carried for hire and reward, a standard licence will be required.
A standard international licence allows the carriage of goods for hire and reward both nationally and internationally.
