Operator with Multiple Issues Keeps Licence at Traffic Commissioner’s Public Inquiry

This haulier, represented by Martin Smith, had been called to a Public Inquiry for a number of reasons. One driver, who at the time of his offending had also been a director, had been prosecuted by DVSA for making false records by removing his driver card from the tachograph unit whilst driving.

Following the director’s resignation the company took positive action to address numerous compliance issues. On the date of the Public Inquiry, however, there remained concerns with regard to the quality of the work being carried out by the external maintenance provider. The Traffic Commissioner curtailed the company’s operator’s licence for a period of approximately three months and accepted various undertakings, one of which required the company to ensure that its vehicles were properly PMI’d and passed roller brake tests before they went back into service.
