Uber plans to put forward further reasons for its appeal before a planned hearing on December 11.

Uber has filed an appeal against the decision by London authorities to deny it a licence to operate in London. "As our new CEO [chief executive] has said, we are determined to make things right", an Uber spokesperson said.

The appeal was submitted to Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday in the first stage of a legal process which could take months or years to reach a conclusion. "The parties will be made aware of the [appeals hearing] date formally".

Earlier this week, London mayor Sadiq Khan said the appeal against Transport for London "will take its course".

TfL cited concerns including Uber's approach to reporting criminal offences, its treatment of drivers, how it conducted medical and criminal checks on drivers, and whether software employed to evade regulation was being used in London.
