I heard that any driver registered to Uber, can work in London. Well the Uber app lets them work there.

Can anyone confirm?
Best way to confirm is if u have any relative or know a driver in London, get them to install driver app and then log in with ur details, if they can log in then yes u can get job

From what I understand, uber London ONLY give jobs out to TFL licensed drivers and cars within the TFL licensing area. its covered by the Private Hire (London) Act 1998.

However outside of London, and the London PH legislation, it seems to be a free for all with drivers getting cars licensed in one area to work another as the neighboring area has cheaper / less stringent conditions.

This has been in the news recently with some area's refusing uber an ph operators license, so uber just tell local drivers to get a TFL license and a TFL licensed car, and because they dispatch the work from within the TFL licensed area to anywhere in the UK, its all above board and legit.

Quite how TFL plan to enforce their conditions on TFL drivers working in say Bristol, is anyone's guess.

The whole set up seems to need reeling in and legislation introduced to allow national enforcement by all the local licensing depts.

My Uber works in Leeds, Leicester, Birmingham, Coventry.

I will check this weekend if it works in London.

I think I will be using uber as a pax in London last weekend.

Last time I used uber, a 15 plate viano turned up to take us. It was a very posh Viano.
Black cabs are quite expensive in London, I guess the same journey would have cost me triple.
Euston Ibis to Macclesfield street W1D.
Cost us £5 on pool! A bargain during rush hour.

Not a bargain for the driver who after commission is left with £3.75 b4 fuel and other expenses.Obviously you gave your comrade a good tip.

Makes you wonder how they clear £1300 a week on those rates, but they do.
