    The car age rules are riduculous in London.
    Eg. Car A is registered new in March 2014. Car B is registered new in Feb 2015 and therfore 2 years and 1mth old. ( or 11mths younger than car A).
    Both are treated the exact same by Uber. This is utter madness and cuts out the very best value used cars for drivers to purchase.
    Rectify it by simply making it a 3 year rule on cars age for exec/lux. or an 8 year rule , etc from date if first reg… Simples.
    Why have the ridiculous plate rule. I.e 14 and 64 reg being treated the exact same.
    Not fair. Does not help drivers or users in any way at all.
