An operator’s licence (or O licence) is the legal authority that is required to operate goods, or passenger vehicles, in the UK. You are not allowed to simply purchase a lorry and start delivering goods for either yourself or other people. Goods vehicles range in size and weight and include the largest and heaviest types of vehicles on the road. The operator licensing system is intended to ensure that minimum standards of safety and environmental controls are in place to protect other road users and the general public.
