I am unemployed and have been driving for 30 yrs. I have good educational qualifications and good health. I do not forsee any problems getting a taxi licence except that i have previously been disqualified from driving for 2 yrs due to drink driving offence. I have since obtained my licence an d have a clean record for the past 2 yrs. Could you let me know if my previous offence is an impediment to my application to LTA.
