Minutes:

The Committee considered the report of the Licensing Manager on an application for a Restricted Private Hire Drivers Licence whereby the applicant had disclosed convictions during the application process. The application was referred to the Committee to determine whether the applicant was a fit and proper person to hold a Licence within the Dover district.

 

In accordance with the approved procedure Members offered the applicant the opportunity to explain the circumstances that led to the disclosed convictions. Members heard from the applicant regarding the convictions themselves, the applicant’s employment history, family circumstances and the reasons for wanting the Restricted Private Hire Drivers licence.

 

The Committee withdrew from the meeting with the Principal Lawyer – Litigation and Regulatory to consider its decision. Upon returning it was reported that Members had noted the upfront declaration of the applicant’s convictions. Having considered the matter the Committee was satisfied the applicant was a fit and proper person to hold a Restricted Private Hire Drivers Licence.

 

RESOLVED:     That the applicant be granted a Restricted Private Hire Drivers Licence in the Dover district for a period of 3 years.
