Taxi and private hire

The aim of licensing drivers and both hackney carriage and private hire vehicles is to protect the public and to ensure that the public has reasonable access to hackney carriage and private hire services because of the part they play in local transport provision. It is important that the Authority’s licensing powers are used to ensure that hackney carriages and private hire vehicles that are licensed in the borough are safe, comfortable and properly insured.

 

Our objectives are as follows:

 

  • To ensure the safety of the public affected by the operation of hackney carriage and private hire services.
  • To ensure the safety and comfort of users of hackney carriage and private hire services.
  • To encourage the provision of high quality and accessible hackney carriage and private hire services.
