TAXI RENEWAL ALLOWED FOR DRIVER WITH RECENT NO INSURANCE CONVICTION.

Today one of our drivers was successful when appearing before Council Committee in applying for a new Hackney Carriage licence and renewal of his Private Hire licence despite a recent conviction for driving without insurance. This was despite the fact that the Council Guidelines would suggest at least 2 year suspension. This result follows on from an acquittal for allegations of driving without a valid taxi licence and an absolute discharge and no endorsement for driving without insurance.

If you are a current taxi driver or applying for a new taxi licence you can be called before committee to explain any previous convictions, including driving convictions. At JTS we can hep you both through committee and if necessary the appeal process. Call or email us now for further advice.
