Restricted O Licence Holder Keeps Licence After Fixing Maintenance Failings
This restricted goods vehicle O licence holder was called to Traffic Commissioner’s Public Inquiry after a number of maintenance and compliance failings came to light. These included a high PG9 rate, and evidence that a vehicle was used on the road without an MOT in place. Prior to the Public Inquiry SBC worked closely with a transport consultant to fundamentally overhaul the maintenance and compliance arrangements of the business.
At Public Inquiry, it was recognised that whilst serious maintenance failings had taken place in the past, the operator had addressed these failings prior to the Inquiry and had been proactive about fixing them. In the circumstances, the Traffic Commissioner decided not to revoke, curtail or suspend the licence, but instead accepted a number of undertakings from the operator to ensure future compliance.
