Taxi and driver licensing

We are responsible for licensing two types of vehicle, hackney carriages and private hire vehicles in Somerset West and Taunton.

Both types can only be driven by a driver licensed by Somerset West and Taunton Council.

Drivers must wear ID badges where they can easily be seen by the public.
