What is the Public Carriage Office?
There are approximately 60,000 private hire drivers, 49,000 licensed private hire vehicles and around 2,800 private hire operators in London. Over 3 million trips are made around London every year by taxi and private hire vehicles. These are all licensed by the TfL or what we all still know as the Public Carriage Office (PCO). This body ensures that vehicles, drivers and operators meet the high standards required to meet legislation.
The PCO is now also known as TfL Taxi and Private Hire which perhaps describes more accurately the area they operate in, but this site still has all the relevant information you will need to get your license. So apart from the name nothing else has changed.
