The following is taken from an email circulated by the Office of the Traffic Commissioner.
As well as the regulatory outcome of the hearing, the information published includes:
- the date of the hearing
- the driver’s name
- the driver’s year of birth
- the first part of the driver’s postcode
Publishing this information will make it easier for operators to find out if a driver has been subject to regulatory action. This will help them to ensure that they do not use drivers who have not declared any action taken by a TC against their vocational entitlement to their employers.
The traffic commissioners have ensured they comply with data protection principles when publishing this data.
