There are two main types of taxi on the road today: Hackney carriages and private hire.

The oldest form of vehicle hire in England and Wales, Hackney carriages are allowed to pick passengers up from a rank or by being hailed in the street.


Mini cabs are private hire vehicles and as such can only pick up passengers that have been pre-booked through a licensed private hire operator.

Whether you are a driver or operator, we can help you get the relevant licence and minimise the effects of any regulatory or enforcement actions that are brought against you.
