The conference gives you the opportunity to hear about current legislation and how it impacts your business – to keep your licence.

In addition, you will hear about new rules and regulations on how to operate your transport legally.

Transport Compliance:

  • What are the main issues that come before the West Midlands Traffic Commissioner and how they are enforced?
  • Why be a legally compliant operator?
  • New legislation
  • How to protect your operators’ licence


Clean Air Zones:

  • What will be the effects of the introduction of the Clean Air Zones being introduced in Birmingham?
