Senior Traffic Commissioner (STC) Richard Turfitt (pictured) has issued temporary updates to several Statutory Documents considering the challenges facing operators during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
Mr Turfitt says that TCs “should recognise the exceptional nature of the operating environment during this period of uncertainty.” Financial standing, access to operating centres, Transport Managers (TMs), service registrations and staff shortages are among the subjects addressed.
Under the emergency guidance, businesses that cannot meet the appropriate financial standing requirements may apply to a TC for a period of grace. The TC can rely on a satisfactory financial check . . .
