The Licensing and Regulatory Sub-Committee considered an application for a Hackney Carriage Vehicle Licence Extension for a Mercedes Benz vehicle registration SV13 JKZ.
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 28 April 2024, with five advisories. The Applicant’s spokesperson confirmed that these had all been fixed. The Sub-Committee were informed that the vehicle passed its annual taxi inspection test on 25 April 2023.
The Sub-Committee were 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 4 monthly vehicle inspections due to the age of the vehicle.
