Taxi & Private Hire Licensing services

How can I help?

Taxi & Private Hire Licensing

Taxi and private hire drivers and their vehicles provide an essential public transport service across the UK.  All must be regulated under a strict licensing regime with local councils. The main purpose of the licensing system is to protect and promote public safety

Taxi and private hire drivers transport a wide range of vulnerable people including the elderly, young children and persons with learning difficulties. The public must be certain that passengers are safe when using these services. 

Drivers must be fit, safe, trustworthy and reliable.

Vehicles must be fit for purpose, safe, comfortable and mechanically sound.

Private hire operators must be trustworthy, professional and reliable.

If you are a considering applying for a licence and require licensing advice, information or support with your application I can help.

If you are an existing licence holder and have had an application refused or a licence suspended or revoked and need some advice or support, please get in touch.

I can provide an range of professional licensing advice and support but I am unable to provide Legal advice.

If you require legal support I can hep you find an appropriate licensing lawyer.
