Limousine operator has licence revoked after Walsall prom night stop

A limousine operator has had her licence revoked after inspectors pulled over a vehicle taking pupils to their prom night in Walsall and found it was operating illegally.

Sarah Farrell has been disqualified from holding or obtaining a licence to carry passengers for 12 months by the West Midlands Traffic Commissioner Nick Jones who found she had been “reckless” in failing to check the legal status of her stretch Dodge limousine which was stopped in an inspection exercise by the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency.

It had been carrying five passengers from Wednesbury to their school prom at Bank’s Stadium on June 29 last year.

It was found that Ms Farrell did not have the proper paperwork and the limo was kitted out with a large number of seats even though her licence only allowed her to carry eight passengers or less.

Mr Jones said: “Legitimate limousine operators suffer from those that flout the law and thereby gain commercial advantage.

“Sarah Farrell has obtained commercial advantage in breaching the clear rules which were spelt out to her in unequivocal terms in November 2011.”

He said it had been a “flagrant breach of basic legal requirements”.

He added: “I take into account the fact that she is not a large-scale commercial enterprise instead she is a naive foolish individual who ought to have applied instead for a private hire licence from a local authority.

“In looking for positives I accept that this operator is not in the category of large scale, sophisticated illegal operation that tarnishes the reputation of the limousine industry, this allows me to keep any disqualification relatively short.”

Her licence will be revoked from Thursday and she will also be disqualified from applying for or holding an operator’s licence in any traffic area for a period of 12 months.

A limousine firm which takes youngsters to school proms across the region has received a £1,000 court bill after being caught in a sting operation without a private hire licence or valid insurance.

Council officers swooped after a father who wanted to book a vehicle for his daughter’s school prom asked if Dudley-based Splash Limousines was licensed.
When licensing officials then made a booking they found the firm did not have a licence to operate private hire vehicles, Dudley Magistrates Court heard.
The insurance policies, which stated they covered private hire cars, therefore became invalid, said Mr Tim Holder, prosecuting. The firm is run by Lee Jeavons and Rachel Marson, who said they could end up going out of business as a result of the court hearing.

Marson and Jeavons, who drove the limousine, told magistrates they believed they were covered by the insurance and said council officials told them the auth-ority did not license limousines, so they thought they could continue operating.

Mr Shabir Qureshi, defending, said: “Five years ago there was a lot of talk among other limo companies that a private hire licence may be required, but Miss Marson was given the clear impression that there was no need for this in Dudley.”

But enforcement officer Trevor Parkes said the council had started licensing limousines three years ago due to a change in the law. He said they should have been aware of this and needed to apply for a new licence. But the couple claimed all they had been sent was information relating to taxis and Hackney carriages.

Jeavons, 32, of Pensnett Road, Dudley, admitted using a vehicle without third party insurance and driving and operating a private hire vehicle without a licence. Marson, 28, of Greenfield Road, Kingswinford, admitted permitting the use of a vehicle with no insurance, and operating a private hire vehicle without a licence.

They were each fined £300, ordered to pay £200 costs and a £15 victim surcharge. Six points were put on their driving licences.

Newbidge School Prom 2011

POSH frocks and fancy rides were the order of the day as students at New Bridge School took to their prom in style. 

Year 11 and Year 14 from the special school were given the red-carpet treatment as they dressed in their finery for the end of year shindig, held at the school in Roman Road, Hollinwood.  

Staff donned dark glasses to become “bouncers” for the night and two white limos, from Lady Jayne Limousines, ensured Year 14 students made a stylish entrance. 

The vehicles were provided thanks to money raised by staff on the eye unit at the Royal Oldham Hospital who work with older students on the Bridging the Gap work-placement project.

A new motor vehicle insurance law came into force today 20.06.11   

This will mean it will be illegal to own an uninsured motor vehicle. As the law previously stood, uninsured drivers were only prosecuted if they were actually caught driving on the road. The new rules will see motorists being prosecuted for the offence by simply owning a motor vehicle without insurance regardless of whether they drive it or not. Only if you declare the vehicle to be off road (SORN with DVLA) will you be exempt from the new insurance rules. If you don't insure your car you could be faced with court action, a hefty fine or even have your car seized and crushed !

Cab safety on the up across the borough

The latest rankings in Oldham Council's pioneering ‘Cab Safe' scheme show that significant safety improvements are being made by local operators.

A new ‘star-rating’ league table highlights that more than a quarter of the borough’s licensed operators have improved their performance in the past six months. One local firm – Lady Jayne Limousines – has also now become the third to attain the maximum ‘four-star’ rating.

The biannual scores – to be presented to the authority’s Licensing Committee on November 29 – are based on a range of standards including how firms deal with customers' complaints, maintain vehicles, protect vulnerable people, and promote driver safety.

Points are lost if drivers have penalty points and fines against them, for example, or if vehicles are not up to scratch and complaints are lodged.

Of the 42 member firms within the scheme, 11 (26 per cent) have improved their ratings in the last six months. Of the rest, 30 others (71 per cent) have retained their ratings, one operator is new, and just one has dropped*.

Lady Jayne Limousines have now been recognized as an excellent operator with four stars. The company, based on Parkside Industrial Estate in Royton, have their vehicles independently tested and have also trained at least 50 per cent of their drivers in basic first aid and safe driving techniques.

Councilor Mark Alcock, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure, said: “The purpose of the Cab Safe table and rankings are to show the people of Oldham which are the safest and most reliable firms in the borough – and to promote best practice amongst local operators.”

“I'm delighted to see that more than a quarter of our licensed private hire operators have recently improved their performance and gained higher star ratings.

“Through signs on cab doors, this scheme shows passengers how the private hire firm they are using is performing and empowers them with that information to choose the better firms.

“I’m particularly delighted to see a limousine firm – Lady Jayne – achieve the highest four-star rating and they join Cartax Radio Cars and Delta as beacons of excellence in their field.”

Oldham Council’s Cab Safe scheme was recently highlighted by the Local Better Regulation Office as best practice in supporting local businesses.
