Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicle Testing Consultation

National Inspection Standards

Worcester City Council is responsible for the licensing of hackney carriages (taxis) and private hire vehicles.

The Council is currently undertaking a review of the vehicle testing arrangements which are in place for hackney carriage and private hire vehicles.

As part of this review consideration is being given on the introduction of National Inspection Standards.  This best practice guide sets out the procedures and standards for those authorised by the Council to undertake inspections of hackney carriage & private hire vehicles.
