    The applicant addressed the Board.

     

    Members asked questions of the applicant.

     

    Further to debate, Members agreed:

     

    “The Board, having heard from the Licensing Officer and the Applicant, did not consider that the Applicant was a fit and proper person to be a private hire vehicle driver. There were concerns about the Applicant’s criminal record. The Board understood that the Applicant stated that he was dyslexic, but considered that if he had doubts about the form he should have had assistance in completing the form. The Board was not convinced that the Applicant was a fit and proper person to be a private hire vehicle driver. The Board opted to refuse to issue the licence.
