We are able to provide advice, assistance and representation to drivers in order help them protect their vocational driving licence at Driver Conduct Hearings
A Driver Conduct Hearing takes place before the Traffic Commissioner and will consider a drivers’ vocational entitlement to drive on LGV/HGV & PCV Licences.
Driver Conduct Hearings examine the conduct of a driver and determine whether or not any concerns are substantiated. The Traffic Commissioner has the power to issue formal warnings, suspend a driver’s vocational licence for a specified period, or to revoke the vocational licence entirely.
There are numerous reasons as to why a driver can be called to a driver conduct hearing including:
- Failing to stop and/or report an accident
- Recent convictions
- Roadside prohibitions
- Tachograph and driver hours infringements
- Using a mobile phone whilst driving
If you have received an invitation to attend a Driver Conduct Hearing, or for further information please contact our Motoring, Crime and Regulatory Team on 01279 755777.
