My son had a meeting with the head of the licensing function this morning and the issue of the cost of enforcement following the recent judgement was brought up. The head of function stated that the council are looking at introducing a fee for this. It will be a separate fee to the drivers badge.
Any views on this from a legal point of view?

Did he inquire if the proposed fee was going to be applied to every vehicle proprietors license as well as the drivers badge,if so that would be going against the court judgement.

They can't do that. [-X

Ask them which section of which act allows them to charge an enforcement fee separate to a driver/vehicle/operator fee?

Also have to ask why they want to do it this way when they don't need too. Madness. ](*,)
