The Community Transport Association (CTA) has released a blog to support organisations responding to the Department of Transport’s consultation.
The resources they have developed are:
- A Guidance Document – This is intended to support your response to the consultation. It explains why the CTA think the questions are being asked, what issues they are addressing and give suggestions of the types of information that could be used to illustrate the nature and value of your services.
- An Impact Flowchart – This can give you some insight into how the Department’s proposed changes might affect your organisation.
- Cost calculators – You can use these two calculators to get an estimation of how much the Department’s proposed changes could cost your organisation if you a) start using a PSV O licence or b) if you wouldn’t need a PSV O licence but your drivers require a Driver CPC. You can use the impact flowchart to understand which calculator to use.
