Sadiq Khan writes letter to Uber as new regulations threaten thousands of drivers

    With regards to the Private Hire Driver having to have a Private Hire policy in force makes sense.

    Even if a Private Hire driver worked part time, there is nothing stopping him going out and working when he has a few hours spare.

    "“I’m concerned that new rules from Transport for London will threaten the livelihoods of thousands of licensed private hire drivers in our city,” said the letter penned by Uber London general manager Tom Elvidge."

    Oh really? I thought Uber were heavily investing in driverless cars.

    Uber, and all their representatives are so full of it.

    I think Jason misses the point.

    As long as a driver has a commercial insurance policy in place whilst working, that should be sufficient. There is no need to have a policy in place when not working. There is a gradual movement, which is gaining momentum, whereby people obtain insurance for the specific time they need coverage (eg Pay As You Drive - PAYD - cover). This kind of action is swimming against the tide and future direction of the world.

    There are partime London taxi drivers but they have to have insurance cover all the time so why should PH drivers be any different??

    It's a level playing field for everybody or none at all .
    Some black cabs are only part time , but they still need H&R.
    If uber is so concerned why don't they provide fleet insurance ?
    The public deserve to be covered against accidents which ever transport they pay for .
    Uber seem to think they can do as they please . Tfl turned a blind eye till mayor Kahn saw what was going on , illegally giving out liecenses without proper cover .
