Taxis are licensed to be hired immediately - you can get one at a rank, hail one in the street, or pre-book. Private hire vehicles (also called minicabs) are licensed only to collect passengers who have pre-booked with a licensed operator. Both vehicles and their drivers must be licensed to ensure they meet legal requirements.
If you need to get a taxi in this area, check it has a licence plate issued by the Council. If you can't see one, the vehicle may be unlicensed and possibly not insured to carry fare-paying passengers.
Drivers are subject to a number of checks and must clearly display an identification badge. These badges are numbered and have a photograph of the driver.
Do not use a cab if:
If you have any information about unlicensed taxis call 01883 732775, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
