Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing - Individual Case

Report of the Chief Licensing Officer.



*(NOTE: The report at item 5 in the above agenda is not available to the public and press because it contains exempt information described in paragraphs 1 and 2 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended))







The Chief Licensing Officer submitted details in respect of a case relating to a review of a Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver’s Licence (Case No. 14/21).




The licence holder attended the hearing and addressed the Sub-Committee.




RESOLVED: That after consideration of the information contained in the case papers relating to a review of a hackney carriage and private hire driver’s licence, and the information reported at the meeting, the Sub-Committee determines that the licence be immediately suspended under Section 61 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976, as amended by Section 52 of the Road Safety Act 2006, until such time the licence holder completes (a) the advanced driving test and (b) the Level 2 Certificate ‘The Introduction to the Role of a Professional Taxi and Private Hire Driver’, on the grounds that the Sub-Committee no longer considers him to be a fit and proper person to hold a licence.
