Uber in Woking

by willforster on 23 September, 2017

Following yesterday’s decision by Transport for London to withdraw Uber’s license, Woking Borough Council has ruled out doing the same locally.

As the licensing authority, the Council carries out through checks on all drivers, including medical, driving ability, local area knowledge test, and enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks.  Woking Council clearly takes a much tougher line on taxi drivers to TfL, if Woking had any concern with a driver Рthey would be immediately revoked or refused during the application.

Woking Council recently brought in a new strict criminal convictions policy, and is reinforcing it with a Surrey-wide criminal convictions policy.
