Saunders Law have achieved another successful outcome with the DVSA.
Our client is a driving instructor and received a letter from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (“DVSA”) informing our client that there had been a complaint made against him. They invited our client to respond.
It was alleged that during driving lessons our client:
- Would have inappropriate conversations with the student in relation to sexual encounters,
- Failed to allow the student to use her car during a test,
- Acted inappropriately throughout the lessons, and
- Was using his phone during lessons
Our client denied these allegations and instructed us to make representations to have the matter taken no further.
We successfully represented our client and made representations which both disputed the allegations and showed our client to be a professional and competent instructor. Within three weeks of receiving our representations, the DVSA decided to take their investigation no further. Whilst the DVSA retained a record of the allegation, no adverse outcome was recorded against our client who continues to work as a driving instructor.
