TPH journey-related enforcement
The dangers of unbooked minicabs
While London is safe for most people travelling at night, we still have major concerns over the dangers of travelling in unbooked minicabs.
What we're doing
We work closely with the Taxi and Private Hire trade, the MPS and the City of London Police to ensure the safety of passengers using London's taxi and private hire services.
We directly fund 68 dedicated police cab enforcement officers, and are increasing the number of TfL TPH compliance officers.
These officers conduct targeted plain clothes and high visibility operations to detect, disrupt and deter illegal and non-compliant TPH activity.
Reporting touting and illegal cab activity
Licensed and law-abiding taxi and private hire drivers and other members of the public often have valuable information on touting and other cab-related offences across London.
Taxi driver identifiers
All taxi drivers are required to display driver identifiers when plying for hire as a condition of licence.
If you witness a driver not displaying their identifiers, displaying the wrong identifiers or you suspect displaying fake identifiers, or who may be plying for hire outside of their licence area, you can report this to us.
