Taxi policy

Aylesbury Vale District Council’s Taxi and Private Hire Licensing Policy

Operators and Drivers should note that in April 2017, the Government brought into force sections 165 and 167 of the Equality Act 2010, which include a duty that drivers must not make any additional charge for carrying a disabled passenger. Department for Transport guidance further states that; a meter should not be left running whilst the driver performs duties required by the Act, or the passenger enters, leaves or secures their wheelchair within the passenger compartment.

Immediate changes to Appendix 3 of the Councils policy on taxi and private hire licensing
