(2)[F2 Where the condition broken is a condition attached to the road service licence otherwise than under section 7(1A) the Department shall not revoke or suspend the licence under subsection (1)] unless, owing to the frequency of the breach of conditions on the part of the holder of the licence, or to the breach having been committed wilfully, or to the danger to the public involved in the breach, the Ministry is satisfied that the licence should be revoked or suspended.

(3)Where a person to whom the grant of a road service licence has been refused or whose road service licence has at any time been revoked or suspended becomes a director of a body corporate or acquires a controlling interest in that body corporate, the Ministry may revoke or suspend any road service licence held by that body corporate.

(c)professionally competent,

the Department shall revoke the licence [F4 as from such time as the Department may determine].

(3B)In the case of the holder of a licence being a body corporate, subsection (3A) shall apply as if in relation to paragraphs ( a) and ( c), it referred to the person who is [F5 continuously and effectively responsible] for the operation of the motor vehicles used under the licence and who is specified in the licence in pursuance of section 6A(5).

(3C)In the case of the holder of a licence not being a body corporate, where there is specified in the licence in pursuance of section 6A(5) a person who is [F5 continuously and effectively responsible] for the operation of the motor vehicles used under the licence, subsection (3A) shall apply as if in relation to paragraph ( a) it referred to that person as well as the holder of the licence and as if in relation to paragraph ( c) it referred to that person.

(3D)In the event of the death or physical or mental incapacity of the holder of a licence or of a person specified in the licence in pursuance of section 6A(5) or in the event of the person so specified ceasing for some other reason to be employed by the holder of the licence, subsection (3A) shall not require the Department to revoke the licence during such period, not exceeding one year from the occurrence of the event in question, as the Department may determine, or during such further period not exceeding 6 months, as the Department may, in exceptional circumstances, determine.

(3E)The Department shall not be required by subsection (3A) to revoke a licence on a ground mentioned in paragraph ( a) or ( b) of that subsection if the holder of the licence satisfies the Department that he is an exempt person.]
