Self Service Operator Licensing extended

The Office of the Traffic Commissioners has recently announced that Self service operator licensing will be extended next year and operators will be able to make new applications online and submit electronic paperwork for the first time.
 
In 2012 to 2013, Operators made over 75% of transactions online. If an operator is a self service user, then it can already make vehicle changes, apply for licence increases and pay fees – amongst other things – online.
 
The Office of the Traffic Commissioner has already started work on developing the new services, including replacing the system behind operator licensing self service with a new database. The improvements aim to provide better services and better processes for applications, licences and public inquiry cases.
 
For the industry, new licence applicants will be able to apply online. The new system will also get data from Companies House automatically. Existing operators will also be able to send in some paperwork electronically.
