If you are a Restricted Operator Licence Holder, you are not legally obliged to contract or employ a qualified Transport Manager.
However, you are still bound by the same set of Regulations as all other Transport Operators including, regular fleet safety inspections, management of driver’s hours and adherence to Tachograph and Working Time Directive Regulations, driver and vehicle checks and keeping of records for audit.
Failure to comply with the Transport Regulations is still a threat to your business and your ability to trade. We can provide a monthly compliance service to ensure that you are meeting the expectations placed upon you when your Operator’s Licence was granted and ensure that you are in a permanent state of compliance.
