Transport of Animals for Short Journeys

The Welfare in Transport department at Animal Health Agency have recently sent out notification to farmers advising that Type 1 Transporter Authorisations are due to expire.

Authorisations will not be renewed automatically, so you will need to complete and return a renewal authorisation application form which will be included in the letter received from Animal Health. As part of the renewal process a current certificate of competence in the transportation of livestock is a requirement.

If you already hold a certificate of competence for the category of livestock being transported then there is no requirement to retake the certificate but simply to include the certificate of competence number within the renewal form. However, if you do not hold the required certificate of competence then you will need to achieve this before submitting your authorisation application form.

Please contact Lynne if you require your certificate of competence number or to book a test. The test takes the form of an online computer based multiple choice assessment and can take place here at HBS.


If you wish to book any places or if you have any other training queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Many thanks,
