Private Hire Vehicle

Private Hire vehicles must be pre-booked through a Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council licensed operator and must not resemble a Hackney Carriage.   There have been several changes to the vehicles which can be licensed following the recent update to the Taxi Licensing Policy which came into force on 1 November 2019.
