Taxi Licenses

Taxi Licensing Solicitors

If you want to apply to get your taxi licence back, we can help. We have a motoring team of expert lawyers with an excellent success rate in keeping taxi drivers’ licences for them.

How Our Taxi Licensing Solicitors Can Help

The relevant council may consider revoking an existing taxi license for various reasons. It could be because of a criminal conviction, the accumulation of penalty points, or unproven allegations or complaints from a member of the public. Sometimes, during this decision, you may be invited to a panel hearing. At this stage, legal representation is crucial. 

Our specialists can provide the best possible advice either on the strength of the case against you, or on how to improve the case you wish to bring, check that the correct procedures have been followed and follow that up with representation at the Town Hall or in Court.

Our taxi licensing solicitors will meet with you to discuss the case, obtain full details of what is in dispute, listen to and then advise you of the best way to respond to the situation. We can continue to provide you with the help and advice needed throughout the whole investigation.

Can I Appeal the Decision of the Council? 

If your taxi license is revoked or refused by the council, you can appeal to the local Magistrates’ Court. The appeal must be lodged within 21 days of receiving the letter confirming the revocation or refusal.

We can prepare the appear notice on your behalf, however, we can only advise on the prospects of success once we know all the facts. An appeal may succeed if it is clear the council have not followed their own policy or have made an error. 

Taxi Licences Costs

For peace of mind over costs, we can provide advice and representation on a fixed fee basis. This will include a meeting with one of our taxi license solicitors, advice on the procedure and evidence, and representation at the hearing.

Our Fixed Fees start at £750.00 + VAT (£150.00) = Total: £900.00

We offer an initial appointment for one hour at a cost of £150.00 + VAT (£30.00) = Total: £180.00

The exact cost for your case will be discussed at the first meeting and will be based on the complexity of the case.
