Welsh man who used car as a licensed PHV handed Magistrates' Court fine

A man who used a car as a private hire vehicle (PHV) without a licence was fined by a Magistrates' Court this week.

Douglas Glyndwr Thomas faced a Magistrates' Court this week and was fined for using a car as a private hire vehicle (PHV) without a proper licence.

On 19 May, Thomas admitted to two charges brought against him at the Llanelli Magistrates' Court.

The first charge against Thomas stated that on 22 October 2022, he was the owner of a Vauxhall Vivaro and deliberately used it as a PHV without a licence according to section 48 of the Local Government Act 1976. The second charge that was brought against him was for knowingly driving the same private hire vehicle in a controlled district without having a valid licence under the same section of the Act.

According to South Wales Guardian, Douglas was fined £120 for each of the charges and was directed to pay £96 surcharge and £200 in costs.
