What Are The Requirements For A Commercial Operators Licence?

Commercial operator's licences are required for anyone who wants to operate a commercial vehicle. The licence must be held by the driver and any passengers in the vehicle.

To apply for a commercial operator's licence, you need to complete the commercial operators licence application form (available from your nearest licensing authority). The application will require information about your name, address, date of birth, and occupation.

You will also need evidence of your financial responsibility, such as a bank or insurance certificate. Once you have completed the application form, you will need to submit it to your local licensing authority. The authority will then send you an application form acknowledgment (Form Licence Acknowledgement). You should also receive a Commercial Operators Licence Class A or B (depending on your qualifications) booklet and an instruction guide.


Commercial operator's licences are valid for five years. You must renew your licence annually by submitting the Commercial Operators Licence Renewal Application Form to your local licensing authority.
