A council gives a person a license to accept bookings for PH vehicles in their area.

Now why would that preclude that person from passing on work to drivers on another firm, without his name being on the operator's license of the other firm?

Show me where it says that the person who bought the firm has an operators license in his own name? It says that he was going to apply but didn't because as far as he was concerned he had bought someone else's license.

Nothing to stop him if the drivers he does not control have an operators license in their own name.

Your example would lead to a scenario of taking booking for a private hire vehicle without a private hire operators license.

It doesn't which is why I mentioned back a bit the thread had drifted.

The firm bought the firm, but unless the person who had the license died or handed in the license then he can still pass on work even if he doesn't own the firm.

A driver with an operator's license can take work from another operator. Under the deregulation act that operator can now be located anywhere.

That is not what you implied in the original thread.

Some stuff about it in a Taxify blogpost, but not much detail.

Seems TfL aren't happy about the change of directors though.

Quote:
Merely 12 hours after the halting of operations, TfL sent yet another notice to the office of our fully licensed operating entity, City Drive Services, revoking their license completely. They cited irrelevant change of directors from the previous owners to a Taxify employee claiming this represented a risk for Londoners.
