Uber has its licence suspended in Sheffield

Share

HAS become the second United Kingdom city to issue a temporary ban on crapsicab company Uber.

A spokesperson for Uber said the company had informed Sheffield Council on October 5 that they would need to change the name on the licence as the named individual would soon be leaving the company.

The ride-hailing app, which is now attempting to overturn a licence ban in London, can appeal the decision after 18 December once the ban comes into place.

Uber blamed its failure to respond to Sheffield City Council on an "administrative error", adding it had submitted an application for a new licence on 16 October which is still being processed.

It was determined to be "not fit and proper" to operate by Transport for London.

Uber said the suspension was the result of an "administrative error" which it hoped "can be resolved quickly".

Sheffield city council has said that the law doesn't allow for a license to transfer to a different name.

Uber will be allowed to operate until December 18th, and further will be allowed to continue if it appeals the suspension (which, let's face it, it will).

It is understood that Uber was already applying for a new licence instead under the name Uber Britannia Limited and that is being considered. Sheffield City Council is standing firm, though, while its licensing department assesses the new application.

This is yet another blow to Uber as it struggles to properly deal with authorities. Uber has appealed the decision and a first hearing is expected to take place on December 11th.

Sheffield's ruling follows a similar decision made by London's transport regulator, which proposed Uber be banned from the capital because of safety concerns.
