All Directors, partners, sole traders and all senior managers are expected to exercise effective oversight of compliance with their Operator’s Licence obligations – regardless of whether the operation of large vehicles is your main business activity or an ancillary part of your business … but what does this mean and how can you achieve it in practice?

We have drawn on our extensive and unrivalled expertise representing operators and transport managers before the Traffic Commissioners at Public Inquiry to develop a comprehensive OLAT training course that covers the duties and obligations of senior management, the expectations of the Traffic Commissioners, how you can meet these expectations/obligations in practice, the common pitfalls and the consequences – both for the business and for the relevant individuals – of getting it wrong!

Whether you are entering the world of operator licensing for the first time, or simply want to bring yourself up to date with current expectations, this training course will equip all directors, partners, sole traders and senior managers with the knowledge they need to exercise effective oversight of compliance within their own business.

  • The Operator Licensing system
  • The Role of the Traffic Commissioner
