The local authority has strict codes in relation to whether a licence holder is a fit and proper person. Anybody with previous convictions or other examples of poor conduct may have their application suspended or refused. This can be very stressful where taxi driving is your livelihood and only source of income. There is a right of appeal against the decision of the local authority. We can provide advice in drafting your appeal and representation at court. We can also provide realistic advice if it is inevitable that you will lose your licence, saving you from losing out on large amounts of money to lodge and pursue a frivolous appeal.
If you are convicted of a minor road traffic offence you will have to declare it to the local authority and this may lead to a review of your licence. Local authorities are very strict on private hire taxis operating outside the terms of their licence. Taxis can only pick up pre booked fares and picking up off the street or plying for hire can lead to prosecution and disqualification from driving. Ensure this does not happen to you.
