Review of Hackney Carriage Driver's Licence - Case No 15/2018

(Reasons:  LGA 1972 Sch 12A Paragraph 1 – Information relating to an individual)


(Reasons:  LGA 1972 Sch 12A Paragraph 1 – Information relating to an individual)


The Panel was asked to consider whether any action should be taken against a current holder of a Hackney Carriage Driver’s Licence who had failed to accept penalty points for failure to comply with a requirement of an authorised officer of the Council or police officer and failure to display insignia on exterior of the two front doors of the vehicle. 


The Panel had regard to the report of the Director of Central Services and Monitoring Officer and to Sections 4.8.1, 14.9.1 and 16.5.1 of the Tonbridge and Malling Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy.


The Panel listened carefully to the representations made by the Driver but found that he had contravened Section 61 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976.  The Panel was satisfied that the Driver had failed to meet with Council Officers when required to do so and had failed to accept or respond to the offer of penalty points on his licence.


For these reasons the Panel, therefore


RESOLVED:  That Hackney Carriage Driver’s Licence Number 17/01915/HCDL (Badge No: 343) be suspended for a period of two weeks and 12 penalty points be added to the licence.
