Re: If the accusation would have any merit

In the UK you need to have either a Taxi license or a Private Hire license issued by the relevant Council in order to offer any passenger carrying services no matter how they are co-ordinated (e.g. despatcher by radio, cap company app, Lyft, Uber, etc)

Now, do Lyft, Uber etc actually check each drivers paperwork?
