Taxi Licences / Appeals
In order to hold a taxi licence you must be deemed a ‘fit and proper person’ by the Local Authority responsible for licensing in your area. The Local Authority can take action against taxi drivers where allegations are made in regard to the licence holder’s conduct, or where the licence holder incurs penalty points. We understand that your livelihood can be at stake as a result of disciplinary hearings and we can provide representation at licensing committee hearings.
Where a licensing committee has revoked your licence you should be aware that you have an automatic right of appeal to the Magistrates Court. We can provide representation at court to assist you in overturning decisions made by the Local Authority.
It is essential that you contact us at the earliest stage in taxi licensing appeals because strict time limits apply and failure to meet these time limits could result in your appeal being refused.
