difficult to record rank and flag downs as drivers rarely call them in and that would mean having to have staff in the office to record everything

But it's not difficult for you to record the jobs you dispatch from your base, in the same way you would have to if you had PH vehicles.

So someone rings up whilst your driving and says they need a car.

Surely you write the details down, especially if the job is required the following day.

That's recording and keeping details.

no round our way 90% of calls are for "straight away" cab (not car) only a small number are pre booked ;the consequences of years of over supply; the consumers now expect taxis to be on tap

My mate has his phone set to record all calls. That way he has a record and if a problem occurs he has a reference point. Not difficult.

ALSO ILLEGAL i did look into that years ago you cannot record mobile phone calls as there isn't a way to put the "message" in at the start the way you can with a landline

Most data dispatch systems record the calls.
