TCs launch restricted licence holder crackdown

TCs are cracking down on the use of restricted O-Licences at the moment

Traffic Commissioners (TCs) have launched a crackdown on existing holders of restricted PSV O-Licences to ensure that they are complying with the main occupation rule that prevents PSV operation being the licence holder’s main source of earnings.

Between early July and 1 August, 13 restricted O-Licence holders have been called to Public Inquiry in a number of traffic areas.

TCs will consider regulatory action against their licences because of concerns that they are failing to comply with the main occupation rule.

Similarly, the TCs are looking at new applications for restricted O-Licences to ensure that the rule surrounding the main source of earnings is being met.
