Taxis & Minicabs

Taxis in Arnold There are two types of licensed taxi operate.

Each licensed vehicle is issued with a licence plate, updated every six months and which must be fixed to the rear of the vehicle. Licensed drivers are issued with a photographic I.D. badge, which must be worn at all times whilst acting as the driver of a licensed vehicle.

New licensing laws mean the Council can carry out safety checks on vehicles and their drivers to ensure public safety. People hiring vehicles will be safer in the knowledge that businesses are licensed and drivers have been Criminal Records Bureau vetted by the Council.

Vehicle operators must now contact the Council as soon as possible. Businesses and drivers working whilst not properly licensed could face prosecution, with significant fines and costs. Vehicles previously exempted from being  licensed under seven-day contracts now come under the new laws and must be licensed by the Council for the area they operate in. The full contact details for Customer Services at Gedling Borough Council can be found on our main Licensing page.
