Could your farm be better off after the O Licence regulation changes?

Friday 11th May 2018

From 20th May 2018, those who operate tractors to haul goods and produce on the public highway may be required to apply for an Operator Licence. Alongside this, tractors operating on the road will be required to undergo DVSA road worthiness testing, and drivers will be subjected to driver’s hours rules – meaning tractors may need to retro fit tachographs.

With these monumentous changes to the agricultural haulage regulations, many farmers are exploring other vehicles as a way to make their farms more efficient and cost effective.

Follow our simple flow diagrams below to see if you are affected by these changes*.

If you currently transport non-agricultural goods with a tractor capable of over 40kph and travel over 15 miles, another vehicle – such as a Unimog – might be a more attractive proposition.

The Unimog’s higher speed and superior fuel consumption make sense when you’re considering saving costs. Jobs in the field can be completed quicker, meaning more can be done in a day and you’re able to move onto the next job sooner. Visit our Unimog for Agriculture page to find out more.
