    at least you know they will have a good service history, in London, licensed Hackney carriages have to be serviced and Mot'd (inspected) every six months. The inspections were held in Islington for my Uncles cab by the Police approved garage. He was lucky in that he leased his cab for two years so never incuured bot the purchase price and sevice costs, but when he bought his cab, he bought a diesel.
