Taxi operators are licensed by the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure and must abide by the conditions of their road service licence, which includes ensuring drivers observe a Code of Conduct.
There are currently 115 permanent taxi service licences in operation plus 4 accessible taxi licences and 10 temporary licences.
When pre-booking a taxi, should a customer prefer, they can ask the taxi operator for a fixed price for a journey. By choosing this option, the taxi driver will be operating on a private hire basis and will not be permitted to use the taximeter to calculate the fare.
There are also a number of private hire vehicles licensed to undertake wedding transfers, Island tours, corporate transfers etc.
If you have any complaints or queries concerning the taxi services please contact Driver & Vehicle Licensing Public Transport Section 01481 202227 or 01481 202228.
There are currently four taxis that are specifically licensed as disability accessible. They are each fitted with shallow wheelchair ramps as well as other specialised features to assist persons with a disability. Further information can be obtained here.
