Taxi Licensing Consultation

Closed 25 Feb 2019

Opened 23 Jan 2019


Private hire vehicles are licensed to undertake pre-booked journeys through a licensed private hire operator. There is currently no condition requiring a licensed private hire vehicle to display the details of the licensed private hire operator for whom they are working.

Stockport Council is considering making it a condition of a private hire vehicle licence that the name of the private hire operator under which the vehicle is working is displayed on the vehicle bodywork. This licensing condition is being considered on the basis of public safety to ensure avoidance of public confusion and effective enforcement.
