About you

Most people refer to all licensed vehicles as ‘taxis’. However there is a difference between hackney carriages and private hire vehicles:

  • Hackney carriages pick up passengers from marked taxi ranks and can also be flagged down in the street. In Leicester these vehicles are black and look similar to traditional London cabs.
  • Private hire vehicles can only take passengers who have pre-booked via a private hire operator. They are usually saloon vehicles and can be any colour other than black.
