Initial application to licence a Private Hire Vehicle pdf icon PDF 207 KB

Report of Director of Community Protection

Additional documents:


John Davis, Taxi Licensing Manager, presented the report, which requested the Committee consider a departure from the Council’s private hire ‘Age and Specification Policy’ which requires vehicles to be ‘no more than 4-years old’ when first licensed. Mr Davis confirmed that the vehicle is 5 years old, is a prestige all electric vehicle and, in all other respects, met the Council’s policy and reasons for it.


In response to questions, Mr Davis stated that the vehicle is a ULEV and confirmed that each application had to be considered on its own merits. A decision to grant a licence in this case would not reflect a change in Council Policy and any future requests for departure from that policy would be dealt with on a case by case basis.


Resolved that, subject to the vehicle passing the Council’s enhanced MOT test, a Private Hire Vehicle Licence be granted for the Tesla Model S vehicle, registration number LD17 UVY.
