Taxis and private hire vehicles during coronavirus

Read the latest coronavirus advice on taxi and private hire vehicles for drivers passengers.

Vehicle licences are usually granted for 1 year, driver licences for 3 years and operator licences for 5 years.

Licensed operators can only operate vehicles and drivers that are licensed in the same zone, for example an East Dorset Zone operator may only operate vehicles/drivers who are also registered in the East Dorset Zone.

Taxi fares

The council sets the maximum fares that taxis are able to charge. View the taxi fares chart.

If you make a booking with a private hire company you should agree the fare before the booking is confirmed as the council does not set these fares.
