The Road Transport Operator Licensing Unit of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport mainly deals with applications for Road Haulage Operator Licences and Road Passenger Transport Operator Licences. We also authorise the addition, substitution or removal of vehicles on these licences. You must have an operator licence if you:
- transport goods for hire or reward using a vehicle with a maximum permitted weight above 3.5 tonnes, or
- transport passengers for hire or reward using a vehicle so constructed and equipped as to be suitable for carrying 9 or more passengers.
The tables below outline the licences and documents we issue. If you have any questions about operator licensing please contact us using the details shown in the Contact Us section. We aim to provide clear, helpful information and a simple, straightforward application process - if you have any suggestions for improvements, please let us know.
