Consultation – Draft Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver Training Policy

Hackney Carriage & Private Hire Licensing

Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council is consulting on changes to the existing Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver Training requirements. Many of the elements of the policy are unchanged from the existing training undertaken but additional areas and the inclusion of tests are proposed.

This new Policy relates to new drivers and not generally existing ones, except in specific circumstances but changes in the future may take place which requires existing drivers to undertake some degree of refresher training. A policy is a living document and where concerns are raised, or changes occur, then the policy needs to be reviewed.

The new Policy includes areas suggested by the Department for Transport Statutory Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Standards.

Comments may be submitted via e-mail to or in writing to the Licensing Section, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Town Hall, Coton Road, Nuneaton  CV11 5AA.

The draft Policy may be introduced on completion of the consultation.

The consultatation period will close on 16th August 2021.
