NICK DENTON, traffic commissioner (TC) for London and the South East, has revoked the 0-licence of a building firm, describing it as "seriously noncompliant':
Following a public inquiry in Eastbourne, the TC also disqualified the director of Wembley-based VST Building and Maintenance, Veledin Thaci, for six months.
During the inquiry, Denton was told about a Vosa investigation into the company (authorised for seven vehicles and two trailers). Investigations revealed that: • vehicles were defective, with loose wheel nuts found on one occasion; • routine safety inspection records were not available; • no maintenance contract was in place; the operator could not produce sufficient records for daily driver safety checks; • safety checks were not pre-planned; • vehicles had failed MoT tests; • drivers' hours records were not produced;
• vehicles were being parked at a location that the TC had not authorised.
The business had lost its previous 0-licence in January 2011 when it was revoked for failing to meet a financial condition. TC Denton also outlined his concern over who would be in control of the company and its vehicles while Thaci was abroad.
According to TC Nick Denton, Veledin Thaci consistently sought to evade his responsibilities.
