We want your views on the framework for licensing taxis and private hire vehicles proposed by the Law Commission for England and Wales.
We are consulting on proposals that would include:
- the introduction of national standards for all taxis and private hire vehicles
- tougher penalties on touting, including impounding vehicles
- bring pedi-cabs and novelty vehicles, including stretch limousines, within the scope of taxi and private hire regulation
- retain the ability of local licensing authorities to limit the number of taxis working in their area.
