O-licence revoked for hours breaches

  • 07 May 2014
  • By Roger Brown

West Midlands traffic commissioner (TC) Nick Jones has revoked the O-licence of AM Transport Hereford for drivers’ hours breaches.

After a public inquiry in January, the TC also disqualified director and transport manager Alan Standring from working as a transport manager indefinitely.

DVSA found drivers had committed several hours offences, including exceeding 10 hours’ driving, exceeding 4.5 hours’ driving without taking a required break and taking insufficient daily rest.

Two of the drivers said they had problems carrying out jobs within the hours they were legally allowed to drive.

They said the firm scheduled jobs for the next day, leaving them under pressure to get vehicles back to base.

One driver said he was able to complete deliveries and return to base in time but could not explain unaccounted for mileage in the analysis of his driving records.

Standring said none of the drivers had told him or anyone at the firm about problems with their hours. However, a DVSA traffic examiner said 70 of the 80 offences should have been picked up with ease.
