Unauthorised Operating Centre and Systemic Failings for Company Result in a 14 day  Curtailment of Fleet and Loss of Margin.

Barrister Helen Newbold represented this operator who had been using an unauthorised operating centre for several years. After being called into Public Inquiry for this, and a number of non-compliance issues in respect of other licence undertakings, his maintenance regime also became under scrutiny. A catalogue of basic failings was identified across maintenance inspections, defect reports and drivers hours reporting.  Written representations from Helen Newbold dealt with the initial call-in issues and robust questioning of the operator at the hearing satisfied the Traffic Commissioner that the compliance regime was being overhauled and all areas of concern addressed.
