We're here to help, but to keep us all safe please only come to the office if necessary. Most of our services are available online but if you do need to see someone, please book an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Two types of licence will be available: a site licence or a collector’s licence; both will be valid for 3 years. However, you can only hold one of these licences per local authority area.
- Site licence
A site licence allows the licensee to operate at any site that is specified in the licence that lies in the local authority’s area (including making collections and deliveries). A copy of the licence must be displayed in a prominent place in an area accessible to the public.
- Collector’s licence
A collector’s licence authorises the licensee to operate as a mobile collector, but only in the licensing local authority’s area. If a mobile collector wishes to collect in an area covered by more than one local authority he must hold a licence from each authority. A copy of the collector’s licence must be displayed on any vehicle that is being used in the course of the dealer’s business.
