July O-licence deadline for Northern Ireland’s own-account operators

  • 20 March 2012
  • By Chris Druce

All businesses in Northern Ireland running vehicles over 3.5 tonnes will need an operator’s licence from July, under new rules announced by the executive.

From 1 July this year, any operator running a vehicle over 3.5 tonnes GVW will needs a Goods Vehicle Operator Licence.

Up until now only hire and reward hauliers have required this, with own-account operators exempt.

The change is being brought in as part of the Goods Vehicle (Licensing of Operators Act), as part of the territory’s protracted licensing shake-up.

More information is available on the Department of the Environment website.

Officials in Northern Ireland promised at the start of this year that a new O-licensing system would be up and running by the spring.
