Liverpool enforcement officers were joined by Wolverhampton licensing colleagues as part of a private hire vehicle (PHV) operation which uncovered one driver plying-for-hire.

The Liverpool City Council (LCC) Licensing team and Wolverhampton Licensing officers conducted the roadside inspections last night (Saturday 20 August) in Liverpool’s City Centre.

Officers shared images and details of their findings on social media. Images included a missing licensing plate and three other PHVs.

A ‘number’ of PHV drivers were reported as part of the enforcement operation. Most concerning was the report of a PHV driver plying-for-hire. Other offences included licence plates not fixed onto the minicab and no badges being worn by the driver.

A LCC Licensing spokesperson said via social media: “Liverpool Licensing Officers have been working with colleagues from Wolverhampton Licensing Authority in the City Centre this evening.

“A number of drivers are to be reported for various offences - PHV plying for hire, licence plates not affixed and no badges being a few of them.”
