The First–tier Tribunal was created by the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. In September 2009 part of the Transport Tribunal’s work transferred into the General Regulatory Chamber of the First–tier Tribunal. The First- tier Tribunal (Transport) hears and decides appeals against decisions of the Registrar of Approved Driving Instructors (the ‘Registrar’). These appeals concern approved driving instructors, trainee driving instructors, and training provider appeals. It can also hear appeals for London service permits against decisions of Transport for London and resolve disputes over postal charges between universal service providers and carriers, under section 94 of the Postal Services Act 2000. Its jurisdictions extend to England, Scotland and Wales.
The First–tier Tribunal is an independent judicial body, which is supported administratively by the Ministry of Justice. The tribunal is made up of legally qualified legal members and non–legal members, who have experience in transport operations and its law and procedure for London service permits and training provider appeals.
The offices are in London. Hearings are normally arranged in London, or (for Scottish cases) in Glasgow or Edinburgh.
The Transport Tribunal’s Traffic Commissioner work is now dealt with in the Administrative Appeals Chamber of the Upper Tribunal. For more information on these cases please see ‘Appealing to the Administrative Appeals Chamber of the Upper Tribunal, Traffic Commissioner Appeals’.
