Declarations of Interest (if any)
On 9 November 2022, the Licensing and Regulatory Sub-Committee was asked to consider an application for a Hackney Carriage Vehicle Licence Extension for a BMW 520D vehicle registration FM12 CUY.
The Applicant was not in attendance. The Sub-Committee noted the information provided by way of the report. In particular the Sub-Committee noted that the vehicle’s MOT certificate expires on 27 October 2023 with five advisories. The Sub-Committee were informed that the vehicle passed its annual taxi inspection test on 25 November 2022 with no advisories. The Sub-Committee noted that the vehicles tyre depth had been a dangerous defect and although now fixed, asked that care be taken to ensure the tyres were always of a suitable condition in the future.
The Sub-Committee was satisfied that the vehicle was in a good and sound condition and that public safety would not be compromised by the granting of the licence sought.
Accordingly, the Sub-Committee granted the 12 month Hackney Carriage Vehicle Licence Extension as detailed in the report with the condition of four monthly vehicle inspections due to the age and high mileage of the vehicle.
