Whilst at this present time a system is being
maintained to issue plates and badges for licensed taxi and private
hire vehicles, and their drivers, there is concern that with the
impact of Covid-19 the Council may reach a position whereby it is
not be possible to issue a plate or drivers badge due to staff
The Council’s Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Policy references the issue of plates and badges, and the requirements surrounding their display. If badge and plate make up is compromised, it is suggested that the Council issue a temporary licence by way of email, and a letter to the driver or proprietor concerned that they can present this to clients using their vehicles.
