Trade Licences Explained...
Untaxed and unregistered vehicles may operate on the public road under a trade licence in certain circumstances. Trade licences are issued only to motor traders, motor dealers and vehicle testers and can only be used by them in defined situations on vehicles which are in their temporary possession. The licences may be used on vehicles that are registered and taxed provided all conditions of their use are met.
