Hackney carriage documents
Guidance and forms for hackney carriages.
The council has adopted The Institute of Licensing Guidance on determining the suitability of applicants and licences in the hackney and private hire trades as policy with the exception of para 4.42 will replaced by:
A minor traffic or vehicle related offence is one which does not involve loss of life, driving under the influence of drink or drugs, driving whilst using a mobile phone, and has not resulted in injury to any person or damage to any property (including vehicles). Where an applicant has nine or more points on their DVLA licence for minor traffic or similar offences the applicant will be required to undertake driver assessment training as approved by the council. Where an applicant has or reaches 12 points on their DVLA licence for minor traffic or similar offences a licence will not be granted until the applicant/licence holder is conviction free for at least one year and at least three months after the end of any driving ban imposed by the courts and after passing an approved driver assessment.
This will apply this to applicants for all taxi and private hire licences.
