Road User Charging Adjudicators
An exercise is due to launch in the Autumn to select 25 candidates to recommend as Road User Charging Adjudicators.
To apply candidates must have 5 years post qualification experience as a barrister, solicitor or Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.
About the Tribunal
The Road User Charging Adjudicators’ Tribunal is an independent tribunal which decides appeals against Congestion Charge and Low Emission Zone penalties in London.
If Transport for London serves a Penalty Charge Notice arising from an alleged Congestion Charge or Low Emission Zone contravention, the registered keeper of the vehicle is entitled to contest the penalty charge by making written representations to Transport for London. If Transport for London accepts those representations the Penalty Charge Notice will be cancelled. If the representations are rejected, the registered keeper of the vehicle may appeal to the Road User Charging Adjudicators’ Tribunal.
Appeals are considered on paper unless either the appellant or Transport for London requests a personal hearing. Adjudicators act and determine appeals independently, basing their decisions on prescribed grounds of appeal; mitigating factors cannot be taken into consideration.
The frequency of sittings depends on the workload of the Tribunal and on the commitments of the office holder. Adjudicators can offer to sit for sessions ranging between 3 and 7 hours at a time and will be entitled to a minimum of 3 hours per week, subject to change in light of operational needs and up to a total of 50 days a year. The fee is £56.19 an hour.
