Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

RESTRICTED 0-licence (with its orange disc) is intended for use by companies to collect, or deliver goods that they themselves have produced. They are prohibited from carrying out hire and reward work.

Lately, however, I have seen more and more construction vehicles — tippers, grab lorries, low loaders — disobeying the orange disc when they are clearly operating hire and reward. Why? Because the restricted 0-licence does not require a CPC — a difficult exam (not to be confused with the 'try and stay awake' Driver CPC course).

Surely applicants for the restricted 0-licence should be required to show proof — invoices, etc — that they are actually producing something? Name, company and address withheld by request
