PHO Licence

Private Hire Operator's Licence (PHO) No. 8171

We operate under licence by Transport for London (TfL) / Public Carriage Office.

The Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1998 provides for the Licensing and regulation of private hire operators, drivers and vehicles in London, bringing the capital in line with the rest of England and Wales. The Government delegated the task of licensing London's private hire trade to Transport for London (TfL). The Public Carriage Office carries out day-to-day licensing on behalf of TfL.

The purpose of regulation is to give passengers confidence when they use a licensed private hire operator, that they are dealing with an honest, professional organisation with reliable drivers and safe vehicles.
