Why We Are Consulting

The Department for Transport (DfT) published its ‘Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards’ on 21 July 2020.

A review of Licensing Services’ operation has been completed. On 9 September 2020, the Non-Statutory Licensing Committee approved a 12-week public consultation of the proposals to harmonise Licensing Services’ policies and procedures with the Department for Transport’s Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards.
