  • No quick win for Uber in London over license loss

The first hearing on the issue is expected on December 11.

The tech firm filed a legal appeal on Friday that will allow it to keep operating in London while the courts sort out whether its license should be renewed.

TfL has highlighted the company's approach to reporting serious criminal offences and to obtaining criminal record checks for drivers as factors in its decision.

The US-based company submitted its appeal with Westminster magistrates court, setting in motion an appeal process during which it will continue to operate in the United Kingdom capital.

Late last month Transport for London sent shock waves through Uber after announcing it would not be renewing the company's private hire vehicle license to operate in its most important European market - where it claims to have some 3.5 million and around 40,000 drivers. In his open letter Khosrowshahi vowed to make things right with for Uber, so that it can still drive through the streets of London.

TfL said Uber had demonstrated "a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications".
