Hackney Carriage and Private Licensing Hire Policy

Runnymede's Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy was adopted by the Council on 2 March 2017, this policy is now in force and is valid until 2 March 2020.

Runnymede's Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy enhances public safety and provides the trade and the Council with a clear understanding of conditions and requirements.  It will also assist in improving regulation by a process of review and update where there is need for change.

Whether you are a driver or operator it is your responsibility to make yourself aware of the requirements and conditions relating to your trade.

On the driver and vehicle application forms you sign a declaration which states that you have read and understood the requirements and conditions, so please make sure have.

Information relating to conditions, requirements, bylaws and statutory law are contained in the appendices at the rear of the policy.

You will be able to print a copy of this policy or the relevant parts for your own use if you wish.

In developing this policy we had kept an open mind about much of the regulation and only introduced or retained those requirements and conditions which we believe are necessary for the protection of the public.
