Traffic Commissioners to resume in-person hearings

22 Jun 2020

Physical attendance at public inquiries and other hearings are due to resume from Monday 6 July, with social distancing measures in place.

 

Traffic Commissioners have announced that in-person hearings are set to resstart on Monday 6th July 2020, following the Covid-19 pandemic suspension of cases in March.

 

Tribunal locations have been risk assessed and appropriate control measures identified, distancing will be maintained and facilities being Covid secure have been ensured.

 

Those called to a hearing will be advised of the time and date they will be required to attend with sufficient time to prepare their case.  Steps for the provision of evidence will be provided also.

Anyone wishing to attend a hearing as an observer will need to contact OTC, Office of the Traffic Commissioner, in advance, this is because capacity will be restricted during the current pandemic times.

 

Some hearings may continue to be held via video link.
