Each application is assessed against TfL's licensing policy on a case by case basis, and it is possible for a private hire driver whose licence has previously been revoked to reapply for a licence.

When making a licensing decision, TfL takes a number of factors into consideration, including the reason for any previous revocation, the time that has elapsed since the licence was revoked and any previous criminal convictions.

TfL makes all licensing decisions with public safety in mind and will only issue a licence where it has assessed that the applicant is fit to carry members of the public.
