Croydon Coaches lost its O-licence following a string of failures to comply with tachograph regulations and adverse reports on maintenance procedures

At a Public Inquiry (PI) Croydon Coaches (UK) Ltd, trading as Coaches Excetera, had its licence revoked following adverse findings under Section 17(3) (aa), (c) and (e) of the Public Passenger Vehicles Act 1981. Traffic Commissioner Sarah Bell’s decision was that Croydon Coaches no longer meets the requirements of Section 14AZ(2)(a) of the 1981 Act – good repute and professional competence – and accordingly she revoked the O-licence with effect from 2345hrs on 1 August 2019 as provided for by Section 17(1) of the Act.
