The Institute of Licensing (IoL) published the 'Guidance on determining the suitability of applicants and licensees in the hackney and private hire trades' (referred to as the Suitability Guidance) in April 2018. Subsequently in July 2020, the DfT published its 'Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards' which included an annex on the 'Assessment of Previous Convictions' which closely mirrored the IoL Suitability Guidance.
The IoL is now undertaking a review of the Suitability Guidance to ensure that it remains current, and to enable consideration of additional information which may usefully be included. Your help in answering our survey will be essential in assisting an accurate evaluation of the existing guidance.
The Survey can be accessed online via this link and responses are requested by 30 November 2022.
