Yeah, I know how it works.
The police usually do a stop check for Taxi's at this time of year and pull up to 50% off the road with defects or just plain dangerous.

An example is last year when I needed to get over to Warwick quickly because my car was off the road so I booked a decent taxi firm. The car was a very nice silver Mercedes saloon and very high spec too, but it was apparent as I sat in the front that the brakes were absolutely rubbish. He had to drive in such a way as to not use the brakes as much as possible.
