Advice issued to assist the transport industry during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
To recognise that the goods and passenger carrying industries may face significant challenges in the coming months, The Senior Traffic Commissioner has issued temporary guidance to the traffic commissioners on the way they carry out their regulatory duties during this period.
The Senior Traffic Commissioner (STC) has issued updated guidance covering Operator Licensing, Local Bus Service Registration and Vocational Driver Conduct.
The STC has also issued temporary guidance and directions to traffic commissioners to allow them to support operators so that essential services can continue.
Due to restrictions in place due to the pandemic the ability of the OTC to respond to postal communication will be delayed and may not be possible. Therefore all applications for a traffic commissioner to consider must be made in writing to the Office of the Traffic Commissioner and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
