Taxi & Private Hire Law Reform



Update March 2014: Law Commission has confirmed there will not be a draft bill until May 2014.


The project examines the legal framework relating to taxis and PHVs with a view to making it simpler and more modern.  We aim to publish proposals for reform in early May 2012.  This will be followed by a three month consultation period where we invite the public to respond to our proposals.  We plan to publish a final report with our recommendations and draft bill by late 2013. - Law Commission
