The origins of licensing for public service vehicles are considered, together with the reasons for which it was first introduced: the securing of public safety and elimination of wasteful competition between transport operators. The social and legislative changes that have have taken place since licensing was introduced are taken place since licensing was introduced are discussed, and the extent to which the system still satisfies its original objective is examined. /TRRL/
