You will need this licence to operate a Private Hire Car (PHC) for hire or reward.
A private hire car is a motor vehicle that is used with the services of a driver for the carriage of fare-paying passengers. PHCs can carry up to eight passengers.
PHC operators must comply with the Private Hire Car In-Service Maintenance Standards. PHCs are only permitted to accept pre-booked hiring unless the hiring commences from a designated rank, or from an approved function/event.
