    Minutes:

    Ms Stocker, Senior Licencing Officer introduced this proposal to the committee. The report details remedial driving courses and disability awareness courts be used as an enforcement option for the Licensing Board to consider.

     

    This would be in response to complaints of bad driving and that they would be unsuspended and their license given back following the completion of these courses.

     

    Following the discussion, Members of the Board agreed the following:

     

    “Where the Licensing Board deem appropriate action to be suspension of the licence until the licence holder undertakes additional training, the licence holder will need to take a remedial driving course and send confirmation to the Licensing Team that the course has successfully been completed before their licence can be reinstated; with the original expiry date still in force.

     

    The fee and any expenses incurred in attending the course will be paid directly by the licence holder.”
