Licensing Committee agreed that all driver must have attended a safeguarding training session before their private hire licence is renewed.

The following resolution was made at the City of Wolverhampton Council Licensing Committee meeting on 12th July 2017.

All drivers will have had to have attended a Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)/Safeguarding course by the time of their next badge renewal. That child sexual exploitation training is mandatory for all private hire licence holders and that all current drivers, who have not yet undertaken the training, must undertake the training within one year of the date of the decision of the Licensing Committee.  Should a driver fail to do so their badge will not be renewed.

The Mandatory training is provided free of charge and there are three sessions per day at 9.00am, 11.00am, 1.00pm and they are available on a drop-in basis. The dates are 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th 2019 at Aldersley Leisure Centre.

If you have already attended a course after 25th September 2015 then you will not be required to attend the safeguarding course.
