Wheelchair accessible vehicles

Section 165 of the Equality Act 2010 places duties on drivers of designated wheelchair accessible Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicles.

Designated vehicles are those listed by the Licensing Authority under Section 167 on the our website.

The duties for the licensed driver of the designated vehicle are:

  • To carry the passenger in the wheelchair
  • not to make an additional charge for doing so
  • if the passenger chooses to sit in a passenger seat to carry the wheelchair, to take such steps as are necessary to ensure the passenger is carried in safety and comfort
  • to give the passenger such mobility assistance as is reasonably required

It is an offence for the driver (unless exempt) to fail to comply with these requirements when using a vehicle on the designated list.
