Licensing Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles
Copyright: OGL2.0, except where otherwise stated
In 2008, the Licensing Committee introduced a moratorium on the issuing of new Hackney Carriage Licences, using the provisions of the Transport Act 1985 (s16). In September 2010 the Licensing Committee extended the moratorium.
The Department for Transport Best Practice Guidance recommends regular review of any such moratorium by way of a demand study.
A Birmingham Taxi Demand Survey Report has recently been undertaken by CTS Traffic & Transportation Ltd. You can view the report by selecting the attached document above.
Check the following pages for information and advice about the licensing of taxis in Birmingham.
