Office of the Traffic Commissioner: Is your vehicle information accurate?

Is your vehicle information accurate?
A recent check showed a number of operators entered vehicle information incorrectly onto VOL
Keeping your O licence record up to date has never been easier – or more accessible.
Whether you only make a few changes a year or you’re doing lots of transactions every month, our digital service gives you the flexibility to manage your own licence record.
It’s really important to make sure everything’s up to date – for example your maintenance contractor.
But it’s also vital to check the information you provide is accurate.
Recently, we did some checks and found that a number of operators didn’t enter the correct vehicle registration marks (VRM) onto their licence.
Checks and balances
Making sure the right VRMs are listed on your licence is critical for you as an operator. It’s confirmation the vehicles you’re operating are authorised under the licence.
It’s also important for roadside checks. If your vehicle is incorrectly registered it could be stopped, because DVSA won’t be able identify it on their records as being authorised on a licence.
For HGV operators, where the VRM is displayed on the disc, checks should be made when you get the disc through the post. If it’s wrong, register the right vehicle on your licence and return the incorrect disc to us immediately.
For PSV operators, if you do supply us with VRMs, please double check that the correct registration marks are entered.
