E Brigadier Compton Boyd, Eastern Traffic Commissioner has reserved his decision on a bid for a new eight-vehicle PSV 0-licence by Stephen Hyke, following the revocation of a I3-vehicle licence held by flyke's father.
But the LA said he would grant the licence if the Transport Tribunal upholds the revocation decision.
hi March Boyd revoked the
licence held by Raymond Hyke, trading as Pete's of Lincoln, and disqualified him from holding or obtaining a licence for three years, holding that he was no longer of good repute, Boyd said that since he had revoked Raymond Hyke's licence — a decision which had been appealed — Raymond Hyke had again been convicted of driving a PSV while not holding the appropriate licence. He understood two further similar prosecutions were pending, with another for allowing a driver to drive who had not held a PSV driving licence for 30 years.
He had to be satisfied that Stephen was not a "front" for his father and that his father would not have any involvement in the business.
Reserving judgement until after the Transport Tribunal's decision is known, Boyd said that if Stephen chose to let his father play any part in the business he would have to stand the consequences, perhaps for the rest of his life.
