9. Private Hire Drivers taking private bookings, customer warningLocal licensing conditions state that any person accepting or offering to accept bookings for a private hire vehicle must themselves hold a private hire operator's licence or must pass said booking on to a person with an private hire operator's licence issued by the Licensing Authority
There has always been an issue with drivers taking private bookings from customers in their vehicle that had previously booked with the provider, and without the knowledge of the provider. Yet the customer may be unaware that the driver in this case does not have the backing or support of the provider, because all private hire bookings must be made through a licenced Operator, most drivers do not have an operators licence and passengers booking journeys through drivers without the knowledge of the provider do so at their own risk.
