Important: Once the process has been started and information submitted you will NOT be able to make significant changes or amendments. Any errors, particularly in regard to the correct wording and format of the GVOL notice may result in resubmission and payment of fees again.
The key benefits are saving time and money. Every application made to the Traffic Commissioner is carefully scrutinised, any errors will delay the process and prompt further inquiries by the authorities, and if the errors are not promptly dealt with you risk losing your statutory fee and potentially the monies paid for a GVOL Notice.
We will make all the key checks prior to submission, for instance; is the GVOL Notice correctly worded?, Is the operating centre suitable?, Is the maintenance provider capable of meeting the inspection requirements? Is the financial standing sufficient? Are the Directors of good standing? All of these things and more will be carefully reviewed before submission and we will remain in contact with your caseworker throughout the process.
