More details from petition creator

At the last full council meeting, the comments from the legal and democratic services manager may have given the impression to council members that drivers do not want a committee-based system and would prefer the current system in place. We, the undersigned, would like to reaffirm our preference for a system where a driver has the opportunity to appear before the licensing committee and we would fully support a change in WBC licensing policy and scheme of delegation of authorities to allow it.

Furthermore, the taxi trade has suffered greatly due to COVID-19 and while we fully appreciate the steps Licensing took during these times, we would also like to request two more changes.

Taking the BTEC exam is an additional cost. Many drivers are not working at the moment and their careers remains uncertain. Thus we are petitioning WBC to grant an extension to the BTEC deadline.

Secondly, some drivers have been issued licenses for six months due to their MOT, and although the government has granted MOT extensions, drivers have not been given extra time on their license. We request that licenses should be issued for a year, as is normally done, and not six months.
