Man who failed Taxi test decides to rank up anyway

21 Sep 2018

 

A want-to-be taxi driver has been convicted of being the driver of a Hackney Carriage vehicle without the appropriate licence after he was seen plying for hire on a marked taxi rank in Christchurch.

Victor-Christenel Arghian, 46, failed crucial elements of the application process to work as a taxi driver in Christchurch which led to him being told he had not been successful in his attempts of becoming a hackney carriage driver.

Three days after his failure, he was spotted by a council licensing officer plying for hire at a taxi rank and summoned to attend Poole Magistrates Court for a hearing. He failed to a show up and was convicted in his absence.

According to a report in the Bournemouth Echo, Arghian was fined £440 and ordered to pay a £44 victim surcharge and £205,46 costs.
