Hi Everyone, please don’t sign up to become members of the GMPHA yet, the administration is looking to update the site to be more appealing and hopefully more secure, we need to ensure we are complying – ‘ use of data’


Please refrain from becoming a member!







Hi Folks, we are still here working behind the scenes, yesterday we attended a A2AA meeting ( Access to all areas) last week after replying to TfGM 20/40 consultation we attended a meeting in Manchester with 3 TfGM officers.

Yesterday we tweeted Trafford Council are failing GM by not having a knowledge test for both taxi and PH drivers, we got 2 tweets back from Trafford councillors they are reviewing the knowledge test in the new year to hopefully get it back! To late I stated the damage has been done, Why should one set of drivers not have to undertake it and the majority of Greater Manchester drivers have too?

We know it’s hard out there, with all the out of town drivers taking work from you, until the Deregulation Act is changed I’m afraid we are stuck with it.

It would help if you went on our twitter page or joined our closed Facebook Book, more on that shortly! If you have any issues or help don’t forget to let us us know by joining this site.

Derrick Brocklehurst the Manchester Association Secretary is on board all we need now is more GM associations and drivers to react with us, the sooner the associations join up, the sooner we get all 10 GM United together!


Got a Story  Then email us and we will share your story for others to comment on it.
