TfL Ref: FOI-2292-2021

Thank you again for your revised request received by us on 11 February 2021.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm that we hold some of the information you require. You asked:

The number of Private Hire Vehicles who’s vehicle licence had expired and were unable to renew due to reaching their age limit on Wednesday 21/10/20, and of those the number of identification roundels that have been surrendered/recovered from those, now unlicensed vehicles.

There were 104 vehicle licences that fall into this category. Of these, our records show that 12 have returned their licensing documents. However, this does not include recovered vehicle licensing discs and documents and licences which are routinely removed as part of the vehicle licensing process and as part of our on-street compliance operations.

If you are considering submitting a further request please think carefully about whether the request is essential at this current time, as answering FOI/EIR requests will require the use of limited resources and the attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. Where requests are made, please note that our response time may be impacted by the current situation.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

Yours sincerely
