In a bid to ensure the safety and compliance of licensed drivers and vehicles, City of Wolverhampton Council's Public Protection department initiated a joint operation in collaboration with licensing colleagues from Hyndburn, Blackburn & Darwen.

Assisted by Lancashire Police and the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA), the operation aimed to conduct thorough checks and inspections on vehicles working outside of the licensed area.

The joint operation on Tuesday night saw compliance officers and licensing colleagues conducting comprehensive examinations of licensed drivers and their vehicles. The operation evaluates various aspects, including the condition and functionality of the vehicles, validity of licences, and compliance with relevant legal requirements.

A City of Wolverhampton Council Public Protection spokesperson said: “Compliance Officers are taking part in a joint operation in Accrington with Licensing colleagues from Hyndburn, Blackburn & Darwen as well as Lancashire Police & VOSA undertaking checks on Licensed Drivers & Vehicles.”
