Uber loses court fight over London drivers' English language tests

"To be fair, Uber drivers do require English knowledge less often than normal Taxicabs, since the app is telling them where to go."

Except, of course, all those temporary roadworks signs advising in advance of road works or telling you which way to go to divert around them in English words rather than possibly ambiguous "icons", especially in London which is the area the case is about. That can be difficult enough for a normal driver if they are not familiar with the area and the relevant street names.
