TfL under fire over minicab licensing fees

10 Oct 2018


TfL have come under fire this week over changes to the minicab operator licensing fees.


The fees which range between £2,000 and £464,000 have been branded a catastrophe and not reasonable.

Under the previous charging regime minicab operators would only have to pay a maximum of just under £3,000 for an operators licence.


Steve Wright, chairman of the Licensed Private Hire Car Association, addressing the London Assembly transport committee meeting, said that such costs are a barrier to entry for anybody wishing to enter the Private Hire industry.


Criticism didn't stop there though as he also branded the English language test as not fit for purpose.


He also critocised TfL for not communicating with the private hire industry adequately and insisted that the situation needed improving.
