List of vehicles suitable for Taxis and Hackneys. NOT applicable to Wheelchair Accessible Taxis or Wheelchair Accessible Hackneys or Limousines.
The information and data contained in this guide is intended to assist taxi and hackney licence applicants in complying with licensing conditions.
The figures provided are indicative only and may vary based on the specification of a particular model. Model change year splits are approximate: care should be taken to understand which model/version/generation is being considered. For example where two vehicles share a model name across a production run of several versions the age splits indicate the version and you should familiarise yourself with the differences. By way of example the early version Kia Magentis has a boot that is too small whereas the later version is acceptable: thus the age splits are indicative of when the model versions changed only.
All vehicles (at Change of Vehicle) are required to have clear windows: most privacy glass does not meet this condition.
Vehicles which are “modified” as regards seating require a Technical Assessor’s Full Report with supporting test proof.
This is a constantly evolving dataset and NTA is not responsible for any loss or damage howsoever arising as a result of sole reliance on the information therein. All vehicles are still required to pass the relevant suitability inspection prior to being granted an SPSV licence.
Where a proposed vehicle is not on the list, or if the vehicle measurement information is missing or incomplete please contact the NTA on 0818 064 000 prior to purchase.
