Driver Conduct Hearings

The Traffic Commissioner regulates the issue and continued retention of vocational (LGV & PSV Licences). Powers available include suspension and revocation of licences. 

Suspensions of licences are often dealt with by post e.g. where a driver has been disqualified by a court the Traffic Commissioner will often want to extend that disqualification be several weeks or months, so that when the driver receives his car licence back he can spend time re-familiarising himself with the driving process before again driving an LGV or bus. In suspension cases where the matter is dealt with through the post, the driver is permitted to make written representations to the Traffic Commissioner (although a Driver Conduct Hearing can be requested).

Drivers at risk of losing their licences will be called-in to a Driver Conduct Hearing before the Traffic Commissioner. Here, your conduct will be examined and the Traffic Commissioner will determine whether or not any allegation is made out, and if so, whether or not to exercise his or her powers to issue a Formal Warning, to suspend your vocational licence for a period of weeks or months, or to revoke the licence entirely.
