Taxi Licence Granted Following Appearance at Taxi Licensing Subcommittee
A private hire driver, represented at his taxi licensing subcommittee hearing by Harry Bowyer, had had his licence renewal refused as he had deliberately absented himself from a course that the council deemed mandatory. It became apparent that there was a deep-seated psychological reason as to why the applicant had not taken the course, which had not been disclosed in his correspondence with the licensing authorities, which correspondence had become increasingly hostile. Once the real reason for the applicant’s reluctance was disclosed all parties were able to work towards the training being delivered in an acceptable manner to all and the licence was granted.
