Button on Taxis: Licensing Law and Practice, 4th edition covers the proposed new Taxi Licensing Act 2015 as well as significant case law since the last edition in 2009, including the rise of Uber and other web based taxi companies.

Taxi licensing is a key area of local authority licensing. It is a complex area with archaic legislation, a high volume of case law, DFT guidance and local policies, all of which practitioners and local authorities need assistance on navigating.

Button on Taxis: Licensing Law and Practice 4th edition clearly explains the law and procedure relating to the licensing of hackney carriages and private hire vehicles both inside and outside London. The book includes coverage of important areas, such as how to appeal against decisions, fees and the impact of criminal convictions, procedural flowcharts and exhaustive coverage of case law by means of summaries and discussion.

Legislation and case law includes:-

  • Aylesbury Vale District Council v Call a Cab Limited
  • Eve Lamb v Equity Red Star 2011
  • Taxi Licensing Bill / New Taxi Licensing Act 2015
