Looking after your licence discs

Looking after your licence discs
Always check vehicles you’re selling or aren’t running
Think about the last vehicle you sold or took off your licence.
Do you remember what you did with the licence disc?
Chances are you took it out of the vehicle.
But sometimes in business you can get distracted and forget that one last task.
We’ve been out speaking to operators recently about some of the challenges they face.
One company told us that getting discs out of vehicles had been an issue for them. In fact, leaving a disc in a vehicle by mistake impacted on their OCRS score.
The vehicle was presented for MOT and failed. This was recorded against the company’s O licence. They weren’t operating the vehicle but the disc had been displayed in the window when it was presented for test.
Even though records can be changed, this one small omission caused issues.
Looking after O licence discs is a vital part of your vehicle management. Vehicles you’ve taken off your licence should be checked too – if a disc is still in the window, it could be mistakenly used or put into service without licence authority.
