that is a problem I'm afraid. You can appeal. You have a right to do so. If this is the source of income that you rely on then probably you may as well appeal. However, for a private hire vehicle the fact that you have a driving related conviction in these circumstances will be a concern. This is fairly recent as well which is a problem.

The issue is the zebra crossing. I suppose it is a point that there were no accidents but that is a matter of good fortune.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

What you have to do is emphasis the absence of any other convictions and the isolated nature of this incident.

It really comes down to whether they get access to this information or not but probably they will.
