The Section 19 Permit ‘scheme’ replaces the need for a full PSV Operator’s Licence that commercial companies must have to run vehicles with a view to profit. Not-for-profit or charity-status schools and organisations apply to the Traffic Commissioner for a Section 19 Permit which allows them to charge to cover the costs of their vehicle and also allows drivers with standard car licences to drive vehicles up to 3500kg provided they meet certain criteria.
