271 minicab operator licenses REVOKED since London Mayor took charge

Transport for London (TfL) have revoked a total of 271 private hire licences from minicab operators in the capital since the London Mayor took charge.

The data revealed by Sadiq Khan shows 11 of those operators losing their licence successfully overturned the revocation decision since May 2016.

The reasons for losing their licences included: failure to maintain records in line with regulations, Touting offence(s), failed compliance inspection and criminal conviction(s).

David Kurten, Brexit Party Assembly Member, asked the London Mayor: “Apart from the high-profile case of Uber in June 2018, how many other operators had their license revoked since you took office in May 2016. If so, were they permanent and what was the reason for the revocations?”

The London Mayor, Sadiq Khan responded by saying: “Since May 2016, TfL has revoked 271 private hire operator licences. Of these operators, 11 have since successfully appealed TfL’s licensing decision. The reasons for revocation include:

  • Ceased trading/company dissolved

  • Non-payment of licence fee

  • Touting offence(s)

  • Failure to meet licence condition(s)

  • Failure to maintain records in line with regulations

  • Failed compliance inspection

  • Criminal conviction(s)."
