Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority, which consists of Bradford, Calderdale, Leeds, Kirklees, Wakefield and York, recognises that the role of Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Drivers is a professional one. Hackney Carriages and Private Hire Drivers transport our most vulnerable people and are often the first point of contact for visitors to each authority.

Our overriding requirement when carrying out this function is the protection of the public and others who use (or can be affected by) Hackney Carriage and Private Hire services. In support of these principles, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds, Wakefield and York are carrying out a consultation exercise on two new proposed policies which relate to the Hackney Carriage and Private Hire trades:

  • Determining the Suitability of Applicants and Licensees as Drivers in Taxi and Private Hire Licensing Policy (Convictions Policy)
  • Driver Training Policy

City of York Council is also consulting on a proposed amendment to the policy relating to licensed Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicles.

Each consulting authority would welcome your views, therefore there are a number of questions that you are asked to consider with regards to each of these proposed policies. Only responses relating to these policy areas will be taken into consideration.
