Freight Operator Licence Number

The law requires that all vehicles with a gross weight over 3500kg, used to transport goods as part of a business or trade, for hire or reward must be covered by an operator’s licence. The law came into effect from 1 July 2012 and requires all operators to sign up to a series of undertakings. The Department has the power to impound vehicles if they are discovered on the public road without an operator’s licence when one is required.
