Under the 3 Licence rule for Private Hire, does the vehicle have to be in their Licensed district when the job is issued,for example, if a Doncaster PHV dropped off at Heathrow and a punter called the number displayed on the sideplate, and asked for a car from Heathrow to Devon would the driver who was issued with the job be legal in taking it.
