    Default Hackney Carriage licenses: Necessary or not?

    I'm trying to ascertain whether it's strictly necessary to operate with a hackney carriage license in the UK having receiving conflicting information on the subject.

    We'd prefer to have some sort of official recognition from the council in order to appear more official and accountable to the public but we're facing some resistance from the relevant council departments.

    If anyone could clarify for us, preferably pointing to the relevant legal documentation, it would be incredibly helpful.

    Many thanks.

    If you google some of the legal documents for Bugbugs vs tfl, then you'll start to see a rather long set of arguments & sadly the license consultation (search this site, as TFL have removed it from their web site.) tries to do exactly this again, in effect closing the door on all pedicabs in London.

    As it has cost Bugbugs on average £30K per year for the last 8-9 years in legal fees, it's not information you should expect for get for free but many documents are already in the public domain.....
