Enhanced criminal records checks will be carried out before people are allowed to drive taxis in Carlisle.
Have your say
Abiut time too,But what i want to know is, If a driver has come from a EU country does his/her past show up on these enhanced checks. I'll also add that a great number of cab drivers seem to be unable or maybe just unwilling (ignorance) to string a few comprehensible words together.
Actually Delboy, this is a big change. The key here is 'enhanced' crb. A CRB only contains information on convictions and cautions, an enhanced crb contains information on arrests, and 'intelligence' that is stored locally and on the national police computer. That means unfounded allegations from thirty years ago, that you might not even know of will show up.
whats new in that, the council done a check on me in 1990s before i was issued with my hackney badge.also the taxi company i worked for who handled children for social services also done checks via social services.so all there drivers were well vetted.
