Hackney carriage (black cab) licences

A hackney carriage is more commonly called a taxi, or black cab. A licence is required for both the taxi and for any person driving a taxi.  Licences are issued subject to proof of eligibility (age, driving licence, criminal records check, medical assessment etc.).

London Borough of Tower Hamlets does not provide these licences, they are provided by Transport for London.
