Most people believe that any vehicle that carries passengers for reward is a taxi, but strictly speaking there are two types of licensed vehicle hackney carriage and private hire vehicles.
This article will be regularly updated with information that we want to pass on to the taxi and private hire trade in Mendip. Please let us know of any news or events that you believe should be highlighted on this page by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to a drive a taxi or private hire vehicle in the Mendip area you need to apply to us for a dual use driver's licence.
We licence vehicles for use as hackney carriages.
If you plan to drive a vehicle as a taxi, you should first apply for a dual use driver's badge as that usually takes longer to process.
Private hire vehicles and drivers may only be dispatched by a licensed private hire operator
