OLAT – Operator Licence Awareness Course (PCV)

Product Code: OLATPCV

Our OLAT (Operator Licence Awareness Training) course has been designed to give operators an overview of the undertakings they give when making an O Licence application. It also provides details of the responsibilities that the transport management team of any organisation should be aware of to ensure that they comply with the licence undertakings. The Company Director who signs the initial O Licence application is particularly obligated in this respect. Traffic Commissioners often recommend that Restricted Operator Licence holders attend an awareness course and they stipulate that this must be held at an approved centre, such as Novadata's training facility in Braintree, Essex.
