Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicle Age Limits and Testing Arrangements

Wychavon District Council is carrying out a consultation on some proposals in relation to the following:

  • Try and provide additional incentives for taxi and private hire drivers to invest in less polluting vehicles as part of the Council's wider aim to lead on the reduction of carbon emissions within the district.
  • Ensure vehicles used as hackney carriage and private hire vehicles are appropriately examined to make sure they are safe and fit for purpose in a way that is convenient for licence holders.
