REVIEW OF HACKNEY CARRIAGE DRIVER'S LICENCE

To consider the exempt report (sent out with agenda for meeting on 17/06/2019).

Minutes:

The Sub-Committee considered a report regarding a review of a Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Licence submitted to the meeting of 17/06/2019 but deferred at the request of the driver and rescheduled to this meeting.

 

The driver was not in attendance and had not provided any apologies or request to defer.  Following contact by the Licensing Manager it was established the driver was currently out of the country, therefore, taking into consideration the circumstances the Sub-Committee agreed to hear the case in his absence.

 

The Sub-Committee considered what sanctions should be imposed and at 10:34am agreed on their decision.  The Council’s solicitor had been asked to advise the Sub-Committee during their deliberations on the wording of their decision.  The driver was absent but would receive a copy of the decision in the post/email within 3 days.

 

RESOLVED that the driver would have his licence suspended for a period of 28 day with a condition that he must attend the offices and go through a refresher session on the rules and regulations of being a licenced driver and take a test on his understanding.  His licence would not be returned until such time as both the suspension period and condition has been met, whichever is the later date.
