Reminder – Consultation on Taxi and private hire vehicle licensing in Wales

The Welsh Government is currently consulting on the framework for licensing taxis and private hire vehicles proposed by the Law Commission for England and Wales.

We are consulting on proposals that would include:
•the introduction of national standards for all taxis and private hire vehicles
•tougher penalties on touting, including impounding vehicles
•bring pedi-cabs and novelty vehicles, including stretch limousines, within the scope of taxi and private hire regulation
•retain the ability of local licensing authorities to limit the number of taxis working in their area.

The Welsh Government’s consulation is due to end- all responses must be in by 8th September.
