The driver should report it too. You should get a recorded response on the reasons and file it ( "foot down Friday notbeing a proper one)

Is this what it’s coming to ? Why would anyone choose this industry. I am a TM and did speed awareness in 2020 , I also got change for a £20 note when I only gave a tenner in the corner shop . Should I contact Leeds and tell them ??

Below is a non-exhaustible list of things that you should notify to the Traffic Commissioner. You can notify the Traffic Commissioner quite simply by writing to The Office of the Traffic Commissioner, Hillcrest House in Leeds, quoting your operator’s licence number.
The following should be notified in writing to the Traffic Commissioner as soon as possible and certainly within 28 days :
Any criminal convictions of the operator licence holder, directors, partners or employees.
Any fixed penalty notices or conditional offers issued to drivers or to anyone else connected with the transport operation.
Where you no longer have access to at least one vehicle on your operators licence.
Anything that might affect your ability to operate an “effective and stable establishment”. This includes any change to your office, correspondence or operating centre address.
Any event that brings the professional competence or repute of your Transport Manager into question.
Any change to yoru finances which means that you don't or may not soon have access to the required level of financial standing.
A change of maintenance arrangements, if for example you engage a new maintenance contractor.
Any change in ownership of the business. This includes transferring the business from a sole trader to a limited company or to a partnership.
Any change of partners or directors within the company.
Any insolvency event including bankruptcy, liquidation, sequestration, administration, receivership, voluntary arrangements or debt relief orders.

I have had a reply from the Traffic commissioners office, and they said “ As the offence was committed in his own vehicle no further action is required.
We only need to be notified of offences carried out whilst driving a vehicle 7.5 tonnes and above.”

That’s an interesting twist on the Stat Doc and certainly goes against the guidance given. They may not take any action, but do need to be notified
