The Governance and Civic Officer highlighted that there were two matters arising, due for discussion at the March meeting of the Regulatory Committee.


Safeguarding Training for Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Drivers pdf icon PDF 112 KB


Members considered a report that sought to obtain Members’ agreement on setting a deadline of 5 January 2018 for Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Drivers to complete safeguarding training e-learning modules.


The following information was provided:


·         Drivers who do not have access to a computer would be able to come into the Guildhall to complete the online modules;


·         The training module that West Lindsey Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Drivers have to take has to be Lincolnshire County Council Safeguarding Children’s Board approved training;


·         There are several different types of safeguarding training provided by Lincolnshire County Council, but there was specifically designed training aimed at Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Drivers for West Lindsey and other districts, which drivers must complete.


RESOLVED to agree that all existing Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Drivers who have not successfully completed the specific e-learning safeguarding modules must do so by 05 January 2018 and that failure to do so will result in their Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Drivers’ Licence being suspended.
