Consultation on industry guidance – have your say

The Senior Traffic Commissioner has launched a consultation on key guidance for transport operators.

13 of the 15 Statutory Documents have been revised.

The publications describe how commissioners apply the law and take a proportionate approach to their regulatory powers.

The revisions include:

  • Stronger guidance on the practice of ‘fronting’
  • Greater emphasis on the importance of completing applications
  • Improved guidance around continuous and effective management
  • A new section on driver employment status
  • A new section on support for tribunal users
  • Improved guidance on the main occupation criteria for PSVs
  • Updated guidance on what happens when periods of grace expire


The consultation runs until 27 August.
