The UK Government is changing how we vote. From May 2023, you will need to show photo ID when you vote at a polling station.
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.
