Uber withdraw language appeal against TfL

19 Feb 2018



In the latest of a series of remarkable twists and turns involving Uber, it has just been announced that they will be withdrawing their appeal against Transport for London's requirement that all private hire drivers have a basic level of English communication.


TfL told  Sky News that "Since 14 October 2016, all applicants for a private hire driver's licence have been required to be able to communicate in English to a B1 standard.


Uber had previously claimed that's any English test required by TFL could result in the loss of up to 30,000 jobs.

The beleaguered private hire company,  has been trying to repair its image since the departure of former CEO Travis Kalanik. In September last year TfL refused to renew Uber's operator license after the company was deemed not fit and proper.
