Taxi and Private Hire Policy Consultation 2017
Councils across Surrey are working to standardise their taxi and private hire licensing policies. We want your opinion of these changes.
This will mean that a person who fails to get a licence in one part of Surrey cannot apply to another as all councils will seek to apply the same standards across the county. When determining whether an applicant is ‘fit and proper’ to hold a licence all council’s will now consider criminal convictions plus additional factors such a general character and behaviour, non-criminal behaviour and other police information.
The consultation closes on Monday 4 December 2017.
