Timperley, United Kingdom: Bus driver loses his PCV licence

31 Jul

A bus driver who was found guilty of dangerous driving at the Timperley level crossing on August 10th, 2011 was processed through the courts receiving a four-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months and a driving ban of 18 months has now lost his professional passenger carrying vehicle (PCV)driving licence.

The licence has been revoked because the bus driver’s actions on the day of the accident when a lowering level crossing barrier came through a bus window fell short of the higher standards expected of those holding a PCV licence.

    Tom McCartney, now retired Northeastern Traffic Commissioner (the regulator for UK vocational driving licences) complained in his valedictory annual report, that he thought he was having far too few drivers called in following a traffic offence because of the way that a court appearance for a traffic offence or similar report was not communicated back to the regulator. It clearly has worked in this instance on the patch of the NW commissioner who also happens to be the principal commissioner for the UK team, with action taken specifically relating to the vocational (PCV) licence.
