Applications and/or Reviews of Blackburn with Darwen Driver Licences

Minutes:

The Sub-Committee considered reports detailing the application outlined below.

 

In considering the application, the Sub-Committee took into account representations and submissions provided by the Principal Licensing Officer and the applicants in relation to the respective application.

 

Following the respective submissions by the Principal Licensing Officer and the applicant, the Sub-Committee adjourned to seek legal advice in relation to the applicants attending the meeting.

 

RESOLVED – That the decisions of the Sub-Committee be as follows:-

 

 

Applicant

Licence

Attended Meeting

Decision

Mr Shaukat Hayat

Review of Dual licence for joint hackney carriage/private hire driver licence

 

No- The hearing was fixed for 6 pm on 11 July 2023 at the Town Hall and Mr Shoukat had been notified of this by letter sent by the Licensing Officer on 21 June 2023, when inviting him to the meeting. Also within the letter was a warning that the hearing could go ahead in his absence if he did not attend.

The Sub Committee had made the decision that Mr Shoukat’s licence be revoked as the Sub Committee was no longer satisfied that he was a fit and proper person to hold a licence.

 

 

 

Mr Mohammed Rizwan

Application for a dual hackney carriage and private hire driver licence

Yes

The Sub Committee found that the applicant’s reasons why he completed the application form in this way lacked credibility because not only had he been a licensed driver before, he had also been in trouble with another  licensing authority before, so should be aware of the processes and procedures, therefore the Sub Committee had refused the application

 

 

Iftikhar Hussain

Application for dual hackney carriage and private hire driver licence

 

Yes – Represented by Mr Rana Khan

The Sub Committee’s decision was that this application is refused

as the Sub Committee was not satisfied that the applicant was a fit and proper person to hold a licence.
