Question

The Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1998 s4(1) states that the holder of a London PHV operator’s licence (in this Act referred to as a "London PHV operator") shall not in London accept a private hire booking other than at an operating centre specified in his licence. Are you satisfied that UBER LONDON LTD accepts all the bookings made on Uber’s app for private hire vehicles and drivers licenced by TfL?

Transport for London is satisfied that Uber London Limited meets the requirements of the Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1998 in accepting bookings at a London operating centre, that are then undertaken by London-licensed drivers in London-licensed vehicles.
