Application for Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Drivers Licence
Applicant for Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Drivers Licence with convictions.
The Corporate Director, Environmental Services, submitted a report regarding an application for a Carriage / Private Hire Drivers Licence.
The purpose of the report was to determine if the applicant was a ‘Fit and Proper’ person to hold a Hackney Carriage / Private Hire Drivers Licence.
With the agreement of the Chair and the applicant, the Licensing Manager circulated a DBS certificate supplied by the Chief Officer of Police, for Members to consider as part of the report.
The driver was in attendance and made a submission in his defence.
Councillor Cooke proposed a motion to grant the application, which was seconded by Councillor Sinden.
RESOLVED (unanimously) that the applicant is a ‘Fit and Proper’ person to hold a Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Vehicle Driver’s Licence.
Reasons: The applicant has had a period free of offences for a period of over 5 years. None of the offences would have affected the welfare of under 18 year olds. The applicant has matured and recognises his responsibilities in life. He is teetotal. He has been offered a job which hopefully will give him a stable future. The Committee have made their decision in compliance with their policy. They want the applicant to know that they would take matters very seriously should he appear before them again.
