The Department for Transport has published 2 consultations on GOV.UK and is seeking your views. These consultations cover Goods Vehicle Operator Licensing exemptions and HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicles) periodic testing and inspections exemptions.

Here are some details about each consultation and how you can have your say.

Goods Vehicle Operator Licensing Exemptions consultation

This consultation is about the proposal to remove certain exemptions from HGV operator licensing. The exemptions removed would relate to vehicles which deliver and process materials that are included in the current definition of engineering plant.

Operators of vehicles in formerly exempt HGV classes would be required to have those vehicles specified on an operator’s licence.

The HGV testing scheme provides exemption for 37 classes of vehicle. This consultation is about the proposal to remove or modify exemptions covering 10 categories of vehicle.

Operators of vehicles in currently exempt classes would be required to have their vehicles tested annually.


These consultations will run until 5 March 2015.
