In the past few weeks we have had issues with people offering a taxi service without a license, vehicles from other districts "plying for hire" in our district and community transport providers charging more than taxi fares using cars. In all these cases our licensing team say that they can't do anything about it. However if a licensed driver does something wrong they get the book thrown at them. we may as well all be unlicensed.

Well there is, it's that they are just choosing not to.
