Road Safety Act 2006

Section 54: Private hire vehicles in London

198.This clause amends the definition of “private hire vehicles” in section 1(1)(a) of the Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1998 by removing the words “to the public” from that definition. The effect is to bring within the private hire vehicle licensing regime in London those operators and drivers who are currently providing a private hire service to an identified group or organisation (but not the public at large) and who at present do not require licences.
