Applicants should:

  • consider whether:

    • goods vehicles are being used in connection with a trade or business

    • the vehicles being used are heavier than the licensing weight threshold

    • the intended operation is exempt from O-licensing

    • the vehicles are not to be used for hire-or-reward haulage

    • the key personnel (ie proprietor/directors/managers) are free from previous convictions that may jeopardise the application

    • adequate funds are available to fund the proposed number of vehicles, eg for a five-vehicle licence: £3100 + (4 x £1700) = £9900

    • have premises in Northern Ireland where the business documents are kept (not a PO Box or third party address)
