The legislation


If you are a taxi driver retaining your licence is the most important consideration.  There are a number of rules and regulations that apply specifically to taxi drivers and the vehicles they drive.

These include charging above the agreed fare for the area you are driving in, drink driving in charge of a Taxi, falsifying details when applying for a taxi licence, smoking whilst driving a taxi and failure to carry a disabled passenger in your taxi.

As a taxi driver your licence is extremely important to you so if you are charged with any driving offence it is essential that you seek expert legal advice.   At Darton Law we can assist you to prepare and present your case.

Taxi/minicab drivers are generally licenced by the local authority and therefore can face two tribunals (the magistrates’ court and licencing tribunal. At Darton Law we have experience of both.
