Transport for London (TfL) has received 1,200 police disclosures in the last three years.

This is broken down below

2014                                           2015                                          2016                                          2017

PHV - 47                             PHV - 475                            PHV - 259                             PHV - 282

Taxi - 6                             Taxi - 60                             Taxi - 43                             Taxi - 28

TfL does not have the information on how many of these drivers were charged or found guilty immediately available, as this would require searching against each individaul record.
