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.
