My interpretation of it is that coutie lost his case.I am not sure what implications this will have if any. I know a couple of disabled drivers who will not be happy with this outcome.Because of there disabilities they were hoping to get saloon licences.I also apologize for posting in the wrong section. :)

Why should a driver pay for a £30,000 WAV when he isn't able to load wheelchairs? :?

They can't say that, they can only say unless 'exceptional circumstances' no saloon.

He argued 'exceptional circumstances', and I would have agreed with him.

I disagree, in actual fact if he isnt physically fit he shouldnt be licensed.
