3.15 It is the whole issue of “fit and proper” that causes local authorities the most difficulties. It
has never been specifically judicially defined but it was mentioned in Leeds City Council v
Hussain23. Silber J said:
“‘... the purpose of the power of suspension is to protect users of licensed vehicles and
those who are driven by them and members of the public. Its purpose [and], therefore
[the test of fitness and propriety], is to prevent licences being given to or used by those
who are not suitable people taking into account their driving record, their driving
experience, their sobriety, mental and physical fitness, honesty, and that they are people
who would not take advantage of their employment to abuse or assault passengers.”
