Taxi policy

We are responsible for licensing Hackney carriage (taxi) and private hire (pre-booked journeys) drivers, vehicles and private hire operators. Our taxi policy aims to make the licensing process clear and consistent for applicants, licensees and the public.

Public safety in this area is critical. In order to assess the fitness of applicants, a thorough application process must be satisfactorily completed before a licence is granted.
