    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is an operator’s licence?

    An operator’s licence (or O licence) is the legal authority needed to operate goods vehicles in the United Kingdom.

    What is it for?

    The O licence system ensures that minimum safety and environmental standards are in place to protect other road users and the public.

    Do I need an O licence?

    You need an O licence to operate vehicles above 3,500 kg (3.5 tonnes) gross vehicle weight (gvw) that are used to carry goods (ie anything not permanently attached to the vehicle) on public roads for trade or business purposes. This includes short-term rental vehicles hired for as little as one day. The O licence must be held by the person – whether an individual or a company – who 'uses' the vehicle and this may or may not be the owner of the vehicle. The user of the vehicle can be:

    the driver, if they own it or if they are leasing, buying on hire purchase terms, hiring or borrowing the vehicle (eg a typical owner-driver operation) the person whose servant or agent the driver is – ie whoever employs or controls the driver. This covers both ‘own account’ and ‘hire or reward’ operations. Additionally, under O licence legislation all holders of standard National Operator Licences must be professionally competent, or employ someone who is professionally competent. The most popular method of demonstrating this is to hold a National Certificate of Professional Competence.

    How often should I download my Digi Cards and Vehicle Unit heads?

    By law you should download Digicards every 28 days and Vehicle Unit heads every 56 days but the best practice of weekly (set date i.e. Sunday)
