Private Hire and Taxi Licensing

For taxi drivers and operators of private hire companies, having the correct licence in place is the foundation of business – without it, you can’t operate. So, if your licence is at risk, or you’ve been refused a licence, then talk to us and let our experts negotiate on your behalf.

A history of success

We know more than most legal teams about the ins and outs of the taxi driver and private hire licensing regulations like ours. Our team of licensing and regulatory lawyers have been working in this area of law for decades.

We understand the challenges that private hire companies and taxi drivers face when their licence is at risk of being suspended or revoked, and routinely stand before licensing committees across the country or in court to help our clients protect their livelihood.

How can we help you?

Getting you back on the road

Whether your licence has been refused, or you’re facing a suspension or revocation, we can intervene or appeal on your behalf, and help drive a satisfactory resolution.

In particular, we can assist with cases that involve:

  • Driving offences, such as speeding, mobile phone use, or dangerous driving that might have an impact on your licence
  • Safeguarding issues, including sexual offences, violence, and incidents relating to old and vulnerable passengers
  • Matters involving driver conduct or a ‘fit and proper’ test 

We’ll provide an initial assessment free of charge, and we can agree fixed fees so you understand the costs involved from the outset.
