The Goods Vehicle Operator Licensing scheme is administered by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) on behalf of the Traffic Commissioners, although the rules and fees are different if you are in Northern Ireland.
What you need to know about applying for a goods Operator’s Licence:
There are 8 traffic areas in Great Britain with a Traffic Commissioner responsible for each area.
You’ll need to hold a Goods Vehicle Operator’s Licence for each traffic area where you have an operating centre.
Traffic Commissioners are responsible in their area for:
• Licensing operators of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs)
• Granting vocational licences
• Taking action against drivers of HGVs
• The environmental suitability of HGV operating centres
• Applications for new licences
• Disciplinary action against operators who have broken the conditions of their licences
