Revised Financial Standing Levels

In December 2017 the Office of the Traffic Commissioner issued the 2018 financial levels for commercial vehicle operators. These revised financial levels came into effect on 1st January 2018. Applicants and existing operators must now meet the new requirements. 

The revised financial levels for standard national and international licence applications and operators are: 

                                            2018                                       2017

First vehicle                       £7950                                    £7850

Additional vehicle              £4400                                    £4350

There is no change for applicants or holders of restricted licences. The levels remain at £3100 for the first vehicle and £1700 for each additional vehicle.
