Uber has appealed against its licence being revoked in London

A judicial office spokesman said a hearing was likely to take place on 11th December.

A statement at the time said Uber was not "fit and proper" to operate in the capital.

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.

Today was the last day Uber could appeal TfL's decision to renew its licence and now in the hands of the courts, Londoners could see Uber stick around in the future. "We are determined to make things right". "The parties will be made aware of the [appeals hearing] date formally".

Last month Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber's new CEO said to Londoners: "We will appeal the decision on behalf of millions of Londoners, but we do so with the knowledge that we must also change". Khosrowshahi apologized for "the mistakes" the company had made.

Mayor Sadiq Khan support TfL's decision and said: "All companies in London must play by the rules, if you do play by the rules, you're welcome in London".

Uber will continue to operate in London throughout the whole appeal process, which could take up to a year or more.

TfL listed four issues in its Uber license decision - namely: Uber's approach to reporting serious criminal offenses; its approach to how driver medical certificates are obtained; its approach to carrying out background checks to ensure drivers do not have a criminal record; and how it has explained its use of internal software (codenamed Greyball) in London - software apparently created to try to block regulatory oversight.
