Licensed taxis

We currently have licenced 179 taxis. This information was correct in November 2018 and will be updated again in January 2019. We will not provide interim updates between these dates.

No taxis licenced by us are currently working for Uber.

Visit data.gov to view our register of Hackney Carriages and Private Hire Vehicles. The register also includes a list of wheelchair accessible vehicles.

Accessibility

Visit data.gov to view our register of Hackney Carriages and Private Hire Vehicles which includes a list of wheelchair accessible vehicles.

Our list does not include information on the size and weight of wheelchairs which can be accommodated. We have also not published a list of vehicles that are accessible to passengers in wheelchairs who are then able to transfer from their wheelchairs into a seat within the vehicle.

Guidance & legislation

Rules are imposed on any party granted a taxi license. These rules include making it clear when a meter cannot be left running.

  • No drivers have been prosecuted for failing to comply with s165 Equality Act 2010.
  • We have not granted any exemptions under s166 of the Equality Act 2010.  If any applications are received they would be reviewed on their own merits.
  • The drivers of the vehicles found within the open source data are aware that their vehicle has been listed for this purpose and no appeals have been made against this.
