If you have a Transport Service Licence you need to make sure the correct name is displayed.
The Transport Agency has recently dealt with several cases where a Transport Service Licence issued to a person is being used by a registered company. Often this happens when a person starts out as a sole trader and the business grows to a point where a registered company is established and takes over the business.
A registered company is a separate legal entity which requires its own Transport Service Licence. A Transport Service Licence cannot be transferred, so when this happens the company must make a new application and obtain a Transport Service Licence in the company name.
If the correct name is not shown on the licence it could result in the company being deemed to be operating an unlicensed transport service.
