Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council

Big plans for an outstanding Borough

Taxi and private hire cars

The Council works closely with the taxi and licensed hire trade throughout the Borough. We license both taxis and private hire vehicles. The Trading Standards and Licensing website includes useful information.

  

Find a taxi rank - stands for hackney carriage vehicles

Taxi ranks are provided on-street to allow licensed hackney carriages to park and wait for customers.

The signs on the taxi rank details the days and times of operation. Stands are located in areas to meet customer demand, such as near shops, bars and restaurants.  

The locations of the taxi ranks are detailed on the below table.

Please note: Parking in a taxi rank by a vehicle other than a licensed hackney carriage is not permitted and you may receive a penalty charge notice.
