The City Council is running a consultation from 1 March 2018, 12:00am to 26 March 2018, 11:59pm
Our licensing policy currently allows for vehicles of any colour to be licensed as a hackney carriage and, with our agreement, for the external display of advertising.
Councillors agreed in October 2017 to the addition of a livery requirement for all hackney carriage vehicles, as has been adopted in many other cities.
A standard livery will make it easier for you to identify licensed vehicles, which are regulated and safe. It will clearly differentiate between private hire vehicles and hackney carriages, and will classify those vehicles that can legitimately trade in the city from those that cannot.
A standard livery will also improve the appearance of the hackney carriage fleet and enhance the city’s public image.
