    Brighton and Hove refuse Uber license

    Rideshare app Uber’s licensing woes are back in the headlines again, after another British city has rejected the firm’s latest application to renew its car hire license.

    This time, it was Brighton and Hove who deemed Uber to be a company not fit or proper to work in the city.

    Their decision comes after a high profile breach of Uber's customer data, where many personal details were leaked. The panel also took issue with the number of Uber drivers working in Brighton without proper local private hire licenses to do.

    Jackie O’Quinn, the licensing panel’s chairperson, said that ‘our priority is the safety of residents and visitors and, due to the data breach and the lack of commitment to using drivers licensed here, we were not satisfied that Uber Britannia Ltd are a fit and proper person to hold an operator’s licence in the city.’

    In response, an Uber spokesperson said: ‘This is a disappointing decision for the thousands of passengers and drivers who rely on our app in

    Brighton and Hove. We intend to appeal so we can continue serving the city.’

    The two other UK cities in the UK that have denied Uber’s licensing requests are London and York, in September and December last year respectively. As in London, where discussions with TfL are ongoing, Uber will be able to continue to operate in Brighton until the outcome of its appeal has been confirmed. These appeals can be incredibly cumbersome, meaning that Uber will be unlikely to leave the Brighton and Hove area any time soon.

    At present, 80 areas in the UK allow Uber to operate, with 35 new applications being passed within the last year alone.
