If you hold a vocational public service vehicle (PSV) or goods vehicle driving licence and have been convicted of an offence or issued with a fixed penalty, you will be called by the Traffic Commissioner for regulatory action.

Your behaviour whilst driving a vehicle can put your licence at risk. Serious misconduct will lead to you being called into a driver conduct hearing before the Traffic Commissioner. Your alleged conduct will be examined by the Traffic Commissioner and you will have an opportunity to explain your side. The Traffic Commissioner could have to decide whether the alleged behaviour occurred and if so whether regulatory action should be taken against your licence.

The Traffic Commissioner can:

  • Issue a formal warning
  • Suspend your vocational licence for a period of time
  • Revoke your vocational licence

As a vocational licence is central to your current and future employment, you should obtain expert legal advice at the earliest possible opportunity if you believe that it may be subject to regulatory action.

Hewitts Solicitors can advise you through the process and prepare you for the driver conduct hearing as well as representing you at the hearing itself.
