Check a Private Hire Driver, or Vehicle
Need to carry out a PCO License check? Contact Transport for London to check whether a private hire driver, operator or vehicle is licensed. This is useful for if you are an operator checking on a potential driver’s license, if you are a driver checking up on a potential employer, or perhaps even if you are using a vehicle and want to ensure that it’s licensed. Alternatively, please use the on-line check below:
Find A Licensed Private Hire Operator
Another tool that may be of use is ‘Findaride’ service where you can find licensed minicab offices and other private hire operators in your area. This is quite useful if you are looking for employment and trying to find someone to work for. Obviously companies advertise for new drivers but it’s usually good to take the initiative and go directly to them.
Why is licensing important?
Licensing and regulation gives passengers the confidence that when they use a licensed private hire operator, licensed driver, or licensed vehicle that they are dealing with an honest, professional organisation with reliable drivers and safe vehicles.
