  • Uber has admitted that sending drivers DIY eye tests was probably not a good idea because the process was “open to abuse.”
  • The company said using Push Doctor, which carried out medical checks on drivers over a video call, was a mistake and that it stopped after 2016.
  • Uber held its hands up to the failings in court as it tried to win back its operator’s licence in London.
  • A lawyer for London’s transport regulator slammed the company as “naive” for using Push Doctor.

Uber has admitted that sending drivers medical tests which they could cheat was probably not a great idea.

The company appeared in a London court on Monday and Tuesday to try and win back its operator’s licence in the British capital, after it was revoked by transport regulator TfL in September 2017.
