No they don't!

And this is for all that down voted my post about licencing and the police

https://tfl.gov.uk/info-for/taxis-and-private-hire/licensing/apply-for-a-taxi-driver-licence

It is the licencing authority that do all the checks. All the company has to do is ensure they have a valid licence though driving a taxi without plates will get you arrested anyway,

It is the polices job to deal with criminal offences. The company must then suspend the driver until the case has been proven or unproven however I'm sure the licence is revoked in such cases anyway.

Uber are shits but that doesn't mean they are responsible for eveything.
