This afternoon we heard on the RMT Twitter account, that Darren Crowson of LTPH has confirmed drivers who are not fitted with CC terminals and printers by the 31st December deadline, will need to carry a letter confirming a future fitting and will need to be in possession of a handheld device to meet the current licensing conditions and conditions of fitness.
Apparently, all test centres will be informed of the extension and any driver who encountered a problem should contact their respective org as soon as possible.
We've also been informed that the extension will be reviewed again at the end of January 2017.
However, TfLTPH's Twitter account apparently has no knowledge of this new extension and has put out this tweet in reply to our asking them to confirm the situation.
Clear as mud, confused....you will be !
Typical example of TfL's one hand doesn't know what the other hand is doing.
More information as and when it becomes available.
We have now been informed that the extention has been confirmed, Plus TfLTPH's Twitter feed will shortly be updated.
