Hire or reward

1) (1) In road haulage this means the carriage of goods for which payment is made - ie as opposed to the own-account* carriage of goods. Where the vehicles concerned exceed 3.5 tonnes gross weight a Standard 'O' licence is required (unless otherwise exempt).

(2) In the context of road passenger transport this means where any payment is made either directly or indirectly by the passengers, or on their behalf, for the purpose of travel or where the payment implies a 'right' to travel, even though the passenger may not actually travel. In this context, for example, payment of an inclusive price for bus or coach travel and entry to a theatre, sports event or other venue is classed as hire or reward. Similarly, where employees contribute towards the provision of works transport for travel to and from work by direct payment or by deductions from their pay packets, this is also hire or reward.
