Taxi Licenses

TaxiDid you know that the licensing conditions that are applied to taxi and Private Hire vehicle drivers and the local conditions of vehicle fitness are for each local council to decide, so can vary considerably from area to area? Taxis, which are the only vehicles permitted to ply for hire, are normally subject to a stricter regime than the minicabs. The Coalition Government has proposed changes to taxi and PHV law in the Deregulation Bill, currently going through Parliament.
