Hackney Carriage and Private Hire vehicles

The Licensing Authority is empowered to impose such conditions, as it considers reasonably necessary, in relation to the grant of a hackney carriage or private hire vehicle licence.

In accordance with those powers the Licensing Authority has set standard conditions of licence with respect to hackney carriages and private hire. These are provided in Appendix F for Private Hire and Appendix G for Hackney Carriage vehicles in the Taxi Policy. However where it considers it reasonably necessary additional conditions may be imposed. In considering what is reasonably necessary the Licensing Authority will take into account its licensing objectives.
