The basics are laid out in sections 2 and 3, but they also allow councils to add requirements that they deem necessary.

56 Operators of private hire vehicles (1) For the purposes of this Part of this Act
every contract for the hire of a private hire vehicle licensed under this Part of this Act
shall be deemed to be made with the operator who accepted the booking for that
vehicle whether or not he himself provided the vehicle.

(2) Every person to whom a licence in force under section 55 of this Act has been
granted by a district council shall keep a record in such form as the council may, by
condition attached to the grant of the licence, prescribe and shall enter therein, before
the commencement of each journey, such particulars of every booking of a private
hire vehicle invited or accepted by him, whether by accepting the same from the hirer
or by undertaking it at the request of another operator, as the district council may by
condition prescribe and shall produce such record on request to any authorised officer
of the council or to any constable for inspection.

(3) Every person to whom a licence in force under section 55 of this Act has been
granted by a district council shall keep such records as the council may, by condition
attached to the grant of the licence, prescribe of the particulars of any private hire
vehicle operated by him and shall produce the same on request to any authorised
officer of the council or to any constable for inspection.

(4) A person to whom a licence in force under section 5 5 of this Act has been granted
by a district council shall produce the licence on request to any authorised officer of
the council or any constable for inspection.

(5) If any person without reasonable excuse contravenes the provisions of this section,
he shall be guilty of an offence.

It's seems to be way different in Scotland:


"Booking Office Licensing

Booking offices that accept bookings for four or more licensed taxis or private hire cars must by law be licensed by the local licensing authority.

For each booking the booking office is required as a condition of licence to:

maintain a record of the registration number of the vehicle hired
record the name of the driver

ensure the vehicle and its driver are licensed appropriately under sections 10 and 13 respectively of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982."



Those with 3 cars or less needn't keep any such records, not sure if youd even need to keep past booking diaries though youd be a fool not to.
