Taxi and Private Hire

Having received Central Government Statutory Guidance, this Council has adopted a “Fit and Proper Person Policy” for all drivers, operators and non-driver vehicle licensees and applicants. If the Council is “not sure” after making its’ enquiries that an applicant is “fit and proper” then an application must by law be refused.

Applicants are advised to ensure that they do not fall foul of the terms of the guidance before applying for a licence or incurring any expense. The full adopted Council policy is available for download here.
