Freedom of Information Requests, Doncaster Borough Council

Dear Steven

Thank you for your requests for information.

I can confirm the information you require can be found via the website using the following web address;

https://www.doncaster.gov.uk/services/bu...

You will need to select private hire operator on the licence type for your search and leave the search name field blank for them all to come up as a list.

Please be aware the register is incompatible with Internet Explorer so you will need to use a different search engine.

Should you require any further information please contact me at [email address]

Dear Craig,
Thank you for your information however it seems that the information on your website does not list the total number of registered drivers per operator as other authorities do.

Is it possible to get this information?

Many thankS,

steven

Good Morning

With regards to the below request,

The information requested is captured by the Authority in two ways, the first is at the time of granting a Private Hire Operators licence and at the time of renewal. Operators licences are granted for a period of 5 years.
The second way is at the grant or renewal of a driver's licence. Licences are granted for a period of 3 years.

Because of the period of time between capture of this information we do not consider the data to be accurate for reporting purposes.

In light of the above, can you please advise if you still require the information?
