Hello all... I have my own haulage company but I decided for the last weeks to work like a driver for a company in Bristol with their lorries, better money and hours. My question is do I still need a transport manager if my lorry is void, out of the road just not to loose the licence?
Cheers!

Is the license active?
Do you wish to continue using your haulage company to carry good for others in the future?
If yes then yes if no then surrender licence and shut it down

yes is active and yes I would like to keep it. I have my own lorry but because I'm not use it at the minute I take it off the road and I am working for this company driving. Cheers.

Yes if you wish to keep your o licence. You must also have access to a vehicle. This can be the facility to hire one so set up an account with a hire company

I own my own yes the problem is where I am I can.t find subcontractors and the ones that I found are not paying enough, by the end of the week you realize that is not worthy and more now since the diesel price is so high.
