HGV Licence Applications
Making an amendment to an existing operator’s license or applying for a new licence can often be a trigger point for investigation for HGV operators. Pellys Transport & Regulatory Law solicitors routinely receive instructions from haulage operators who need help with licence applications, variations or investigations which are triggered by applications that they have made.
It is easy for haulage operators to fall into the mindset that there is no need to instruct a solicitor unless they are prosecuted and feel that they then have no choice. But applying for a new operator’s licence or a major change to an existing one is a critical part of an operator’s haulage/logistics business; without a licence there is no business – so it should be top of a transport operator’s list to ensure that before they make an application they make certain that they know exactly what they are doing.
Advising on licence applications is work that Pellys Transport & Regulatory Law have carried out for years and is an area where we can add real value to your business and help operators achieve what they need without any unnecessary (and avoidable) delay. Obtaining the right advice and taking the right action before making a licence application can be the difference between having the application approved on the one hand or facing refusal and worse on the other.
