Transferring an Existing Licence

Prior to making an application to transfer ownership of a licence, all operators should consult the Authority’s Guidelines.

The application should be made to the Authority by the person to whom it is proposed to transfer the licence.

In the event of the death of a licence holder, his or her personal representative may carry on the operation of the public bus passenger service to which the licence relates until the expiry of the licence.

Application forms should be filled in electronically, the form must then be printed off and where application fees are required, all relevant fees must be received before an application for transfer is registered. The relevant application form and section 13 Fees of the Guidelines provide further information regarding fees and payment.

The application form as a writeable pdf is available for download.
