They could have called that document 'TDO for Dummies'.

They could have made it correct as well.

Private hire vehicles/minicabs
A private hire vehicle (PHV), or ‘minicab’, is defined in section 80 of the
1976 Act as:
… a motor vehicle constructed or adapted to seat [fewer than
nine passengers], other than a hackney carriage or public service
vehicle [or a London cab] [or tramcar], which is provided for hire
with the services of a driver for the purpose of carrying passengers
This definition specifically excludes taxis and buses but does not make
any distinction between chauffeur-type services and conventional PHV
services. The only exemption from licensing permitted under the 1976
Act is for a vehicle on a hire contract for more than seven days and a
vehicle being used for a funeral.

Do you laugh, or do you cry?

Reminds me what the mush doing the Law Commissions numbers got it about 2000% wrong. #-o
