Private hire operator - Criminal records check

Criminal Records Checks

A basic disclosure must be obtained and supplied in respect of the sole individual applicant, or each individual applicant where the application is made by multiple individuals, or each director of a limited company applicant. Certificates must be issued in the full name of the relevant individual and must have been issued no earlier than two months before the date on which the application was made.

Exemption - The requirement to provide a Basic Disclosure certificate may not apply to any applicant (or director) who holds a current enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Certificate, which has been issued more than two months before the date on which the application for an Operator’s licence is made and was obtained in support of a private hire or hackney carriage driver’s licence issued by Bassetlaw District Council. These individuals have already been assessed for their fitness and propriety during their application for that licence, and as such no further checks of any criminal record history for that particular applicant will be considered necessary. Applicants who have applied simultaneously for a driver’s licence will also be exempted from the Basic Disclosure requirement, as they will be obtaining a higher level of disclosure certificate as part of that application. 

The operator’s licence application will not be determined until any such disclosure certificates (including enhanced certificates as part of a simultaneous driver’s licence application) have been received.
