Information that will help you understand the calling to a public Inquiry:

A public inquiry is “called” when a business or sole trader is accused of operating goods vehicles or passenger vehicles in a way that is not compliant with operator licensing legislation.

Now you have received your letter calling you to public inquiry, it’s vital that you take action as soon as possible. Delaying action can be very detrimental to the possibility of a positive outcome.

  • If called to public inquiry, your operator licence, ability to operate vehicles and your own repute as an operator is now at risk.
  • If called to public inquiry, the repute of the business owner, Director, Partners or Sole trader are at risk.
  • The Traffic Commissioners have extensive powers to affect your business, this includes the ability to restrict the vehicles you can operate and where you can operate from.
  • The Traffic Commissioners have extensive powers to make you carry out additional duties (Undertakings) or EVEN REVOKE YOUR OPERATORS LICENCE.

The traffic Commissioner will be acting on information received from the Driver and vehicle standards Agency (DVSA) (previously known as VOSA)
