We advise businesses based in Scotland involved directly or indirectly in transport on the legal requirements of operating vehicles above 3.5 tonnes.
Non-compliance with the undertakings of your operator licence can have serious and costly ramifications on your business, ranging from restriction on the number of vehicles you can operate to complete revocation of your licence.
The majority of our long-serving clients use our compliance services because they:
Whether you are a scaffolder, run a skip hire firm or transport goods for third parties, your operator licence commitments are the same. This includes ensuring vehicles are kept in a roadworthy condition, abiding by drivers’ hours and tachograph rules, having robust defect reporting systems in place and regularly communicating with your Traffic Commissioner to inform of any changes to the business or convictions of any staff associated with your licence.
We can help you to implement simple yet effective management systems to ensure that operator licence compliance doesn’t become a headache for your business. You can choose from four affordable operator licence compliance options, all of which provide you with the complete peace of mind that your business is operating compliantly and needn’t fear regulatory action.
Operator A is able to hire a HIAB vehicle for £75 per day. However, Operator A has their licence suspended by a Traffic Commissioner for four weeks and now has to use a HIAB hire company to service their work. Typical cost for HIAB hire can be as much as £400 per day, a huge increase in cost.
Would your business be sustainable if you lost your licence through non-compliance, forcing you to sub-contract your transport?
