Taxi and private hire licensing

We are responsible for licensing Hackney carriage (taxis) and private hire vehicles and their drivers in Leeds. We licence vehicles, drivers and operators and work to ensure that they meet the specific conditions that are placed upon their licence.​

All licensed taxi and private hire drivers are subject to an enhanced criminal records disclosure.
Our overriding principle is the safety of the travelling public.​​
