In today's fast-paced world, the demand for convenient and reliable transportation options has skyrocketed. One industry that has emerged to meet this demand is the private hire industry. Operating as a private hire driver in cities like London requires obtaining a Private Hire Vehicle (PHV) licence, commonly known as a PCO (Public Carriage Office) licence.
What is a PCO Licence?
A PCO licence is a legal requirement for individuals operating as private hire drivers in specific cities, such as London. It is issued by the Public Carriage Office, which is responsible for regulating and licensing private hire vehicles, drivers, and private hire operators in the area. Holding a PCO licence signifies that a driver has met certain criteria and is authorized to provide pre-booked private hire services.
What are the requirements for getting a PCO licence?
Age: Applicants must be at least 21 years old.
Driving Experience: A minimum period of driving experience, often around three years, is usually required.
Medical Fitness: Applicants must undergo a medical examination to ensure they are fit to drive.
English Language Skills: Good command of the English language is essential for effective communication with passengers and road safety.
Background Checks: Applicants must undergo a criminal record check, ensuring they have no serious convictions or driving offenses.
How do you get a PCO licence?
To obtain a PCO licence, it is necessary to undergo a topographical skills assessment at a designated TfL driver assessment center. This assessment consists of two separate components that need to be successfully completed. The first component involves a speaking and listening assessment, while the second component evaluates your reading and writing skills, focusing on safety, equality, and regulatory understanding (SERU). Passing both assessments is essential to demonstrate your proficiency in these areas.
How long does it take to get a PCO licence?
A PCO licence is a common requirement for most car hire companies. The process of obtaining a PCO licence typically takes around 3 to 4 months, which may initially appear like a long time. It is important to recognize the valuable benefits it can offer to your career, making the time invested in acquiring a PCO licence worthwhile.
How long does your PCO licence last?
After your PCO licence is issued, it will remain valid for three years. If you have a PCO licence, visit our website or contact us to learn how you can join the Crawfords team. https://crawfords.co.uk/drive-with-us/

On May 6th, 2023, Charles III and his wife Camilla will be crowned as the King and Queen of the United Kingdom. As per tradition, the ceremony will be held at Westminster Abbey and graced by honorary guests and royals from all around the world. This year will hold a special significance as over 850 members from the community have been invited, a meritable number of whom actively volunteered and contributed to charitable causes within their localities during the Covid pandemic.
With a history dating back to the 17th century, the coronation of Charles III as the king will involve the presentation of two scepters and an orb, symbolising the authority and governance of the crown. One of the scepters, which was also present at Queen Elizabeth's funeral, features the world's largest cut white diamond and serves as a representation of power.
The second sceptre, known as the Sovereign's Sceptre with Dove, is crowned by a golden cross at its pinnacle, symbolising the monarch's spiritual role and their attribute of mercy. Like the sceptres, the Sovereign's Orb, a gilded ball adorned with precious gems, is an integral part of the coronation regalia. Towards the end of the coronation ceremony, the presentation of the orb signifies that the monarch's authority is bestowed by God. The concluding ritual of the coronation is the anointment of the king, during which the St. Edward's Crown will be positioned on the head of Charles III.
The coronation will be commemorated by public ceremonies and festivities across the United Kingdom and other countries around the globe.
Crawford Cars has arranged transportation services for the occasion to ensure secure and convenient commuting to and from the ceremony and other celebratory events. Contact for event car services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
