Taxi and private hire

We are responsible for licensing all Hackney and Private Hire vehicles and drivers in the Lancaster district

Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Licensing Policy – Consultation

We're looking to introduce a comprehensive policy that provides a single point of contact for all information regarding the licensing and safe use of hackney carriage and private hire vehicles.

The draft policy is now open for consultation.

If you use taxis (hackney carriages or private hire), work in the taxi trade or are involved in the industry in any way, we'd value your feedback on the proposals.

The consultation runs from Monday 29th March 2021 to Sunday 27th June 2021.
