Consultation description

The rules on the operator licensing (O-licensing) of lorries, coaches and buses are substantially based on an existing EC directive that sets out common rules that all EC member states must apply to their domestic O-licensing systems for hire or reward operators. That directive will be replaced by a new EC regulation which will apply from 4 December 2011. This regulation makes a number of changes to the rules that will affect how the requirements to apply for and hold a Hire or Reward (Standard) O-licence will operate in Great Britain.

The department carried out a 6-week consultation exercise between 4 April and 20 May 2011 to seek views on the policy approach to be taken.

The department received 21 responses to the consultation exercise. The response document summarises the responses received on each question asked in the consultation, provides the department’s response to each and summarises the outcome in terms of taking the issues forward.
