            Operator Licensing

            We have an abundance of experience and great success in dealing with all manner of PSV and HGV Operator Licence applications and variations.

            For Transport advice, please contact us on 0161 603 5389.

            Applying for a new Operator Licence or applying to vary an existing licence can often be a daunting task.

            Applications can stall for a number of reasons, such as:

            • Previous Operator Licence history
            • Financial standing or a history of insolvency
            • Operating Centre suitability
            • Previous convictions

            Our job is to ensure that your application is not only filled out correctly, but that any potential issues are addressed at the outset, avoiding any unnecessary stress or delay.

            We’ve successfully obtained Operator Licences for companies ranging from SMEs to multi-licence PLCs; no two entities are the same and so they receive a tailor-made approach from DWF LLP, bespoke to their commercial needs. 

            We provide complex operator licence restructuring advice to Corporate Groups on how best to streamline the multiple licences held within the Group whilst remaining fully compliant in the process.
