Hello, I am really concerned about my application for my PCO licence, just wondering if anyone can answer my question.

 

I have been caught in possession of cannabis twice last year, once in July and then once in December. The first time I was caught with a small bag of cannabis valued at around £10/20 and the second time I was stopped with two joints, I was very cooperative on both occasions not kicking off or being rude/aggresive. Since that time I haven't been in possession.

The first time was a written warning no fine.

The second time a fine was issued, i paid by postal order but my postal order was sent back as well as a letter from the met office saying something along the lines of "your fine is cancelled", i can't remember precisely.

 

Now my main concern is this, I have read the staff manual where it outlines considerations of taxi and private hire applications:

 

An application from an applicant who has an isolated conviction for an offence related to the possession of drugs within the last 3-5 years may be considered, but consideration must be given to the nature and quantity of the drugs, as well as the sentence imposed by the court. A more severe court penalty should indicate that a sterner stance should be taken.

 

An application will normally be refused where the applicant has more than one conviction for offences related to the possession of drugs and has not been free of conviction for 5-7 years, again taking into consideration the nature and quantity of the drugs.

 

If there is evidence of persistent drugs use, misuse or dependency (e.g. two or more convictions for possession) a specialist medical examination may be required to ensure that the applicant meets the DVLA Group 2 medical standards in relation to drug misuse and dependency.

 

 

Now my question is does a fine count as a conviction? would my application be refused? I don't want to spend hundreds of pounds finding out, I have many debts to pay off and I'd rather pay my debts off if the application will be refused for sure.

as far as I read it

you might have one conviction - thus the related fine

don't think the other counts at all.

 

 

as for you debts

 

 

might be an idea to start a thread in the general debt forum

or one each for your debts in the named bank forum of the original creditor

of the top main forum tab.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s would collapse overnight.

why don't you call and find out, you don't have a use your real name when calling. They are the best to advice you. Also the police will give you a clue what amounts to a conviction.

 

All the best in whatever path you choose to follow.

 

By the way think of giving up drugs completely, you don't want to keep complicating things.

Probably a fixed penalty notice issued by a Pc, which is not a conviction.

When allowing a PCO licence they are concerned that you are "of temperate habit" so any drunk driving bans, convictions or warnings for violence etc will fail you on that, the drugs thing is on the same lines, your fitness to be in charge of a vehicle and other people will be called into question. This doesnt automatically rule you out, just flags a potential problem up.
