The Private Hire Vehicles (London) (Operators’ Licences) (Amendment) Regulations 2011 will come into force on 1 April 2011.
The Regulations have amended regulation 12 (Particulars of private hire vehicles) of the Private Hire Vehicles (London) (Operators’ Licences) Regulations 2000 to reflect the requirements of the Private Hire Vehicles
(London PHV Licences) Regulations 2004.
For those PHVs available to an operator, Regulation 12(2)(d) now requires him to keep a copy of the current MOT test certificate issued in accordance with private hire vehicle licensing requirements rather than the Road Traffic Act 1988 as previously stated.
Operators must ensure that, for those PHVs that required an MoT test certificate at the time of the licensing inspection, they have a copy of an MoT test certificate issued within the last six months.
