Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Licensing Policy Review

We are reviewing our Private Hire & Hackney Carriage Licensing Policy and want your views on the proposed changes.

We review the policy at least every five years and makes such revisions as considered appropriate at any other times. Our Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy (licensed transport policy) was approved in 2016 and amended in 2018 and again in 2019.

This policy has been revised in line with the Department for Transport's recently published 'Statutory Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Standards'. The current licensed transport policy already included some of these recommended standards, and in this review we propose to follow all the Department of Transport's recommendations.

To view a copy of the draft policy document and complete the survey, visit our consultation site.
