Applicant Overcomes “Fronting” Concerns to be Granted New Operator’s Licence
An applicant for a new operator’s licence, represented by SBC, was able to satisfy the Traffic Commissioner at Public Inquiry that his business was not a “front” for another disqualified operator.
Concerns had initially arisen following the revocation of an operators licence held by a family member. That same family member had also been disqualified from applying for or being involved in a business holding a licence. The advocate was able to demonstrate that this new application “stood on its own two feet” and was not a front for the disqualified family member. He was also able to produce evidence that the applicant had systems and procedures in place to run a safe and compliant operation.
After hearing evidence from the applicant, and submissions, the Traffic Commissioner was prepared to grant the application.
