I've looked it up online but couldn't find the answer.

If I have a small operator's licence, can I take bookings on the road and keep log of them? Or do they have to be through an office of some kind?

In my club we got normal guys wearing hi vis cab man or smth. They book people put everything on the paper and calling office to do booking. So i think you can do that but thos logs have to be in the office. only my thoughts.

I don't tjink you can. It'll give you the same status as a black cabbie.

My understanding is that bookings must be taken at the registered office. Those guys in hi bud are meant to book each fare with HQ. Greyhound cars is one example.

If the bookings are taken in person, then they have to go and do so at the address/es shown on your operators licence, I believe.

Telephone/E mail bookings I'm not sure about, as I'm sure the legislation predates Internet and mobile phones, which means you can receive and pick them up anywhere?

I had my second inspection by TFL and in reply to the 'Uber' question I was told that Uber are not breaking the law regards bookings. This is because every rider request is first lodged at their registered office before the driver receives a ping.

I suppose it's done so quickly one hardly notices it. So in principle every booking has to be received and lodged at HQ.

Some 5-6 years ago? After intense lobbying by AddLee, gmb and the Blackcab lobby, it became compulsory for small operators to take phone bookings by land line only, before that you could take bookings on the go on your mobile

That's right, at the same time using a laptop or something, book details of the job into the desktop at your house, before the customer gets in your car of course

Stick that one up where it don't shine John Griffin, LPHCA, GMB and the LTDA
