Transport license – company headquarters

In order to obtain transport license your company needs an office in the Republic of Slovenia. The office size is determined by the number of licensed vehicles the company owns. In the office the company keeps business documentation, bookkeeping documents and personnel documentation. As well as  documentation on driving and rest periods of the drivers. In the office the company must also have the appropriate equipment, more precisely the basic communication equipment and office equipment. The company needs to publish working hours. Working hours are determined between 7 and 17, minimum 6 hours a day.


Transport license – company employees

The vehicles that the company owns, determine the minimum number of employed drivers. For example, a company with up to two vehicles must employ at least one driver, a company with four vehicles employs at least two drivers, and so on. Companies with five or more vehicles must also have besides the drivers additional employees. For example, a company with 5-10 vehicles must have at least one more employee, and a company with 11-20 vehicles must have at least two more workers, etc.
