Fee Changes For VOSA
As of 1st April 2012 revised fee changes will come into effect for annual lorry and bus testing and operator licensing. Testing fees are being adjusted to apply a differential between the tests conducted at non-VOSA facilities and those at VOSA testing facilities.
The rise in fees will cover the cost of creating the National Register of licenced Operators and Transport Managers in order to comply with EU regulations that came in place at the beginning of 2012.
Application fees for HGV and PSV operator licences and the varying and continuation of these licences will increase by 1.6%. VOSA will also equalise application fees for standard and restricted PSV operator licences as there is little difference in the cost of processing the application.
VOSA estimates that at the worst the changes to all statutory fees will, increase overall operating costs for operators using VOSA test facilities by less than 0.01%. Operators using ATF’s will pay less.
