Consultation on signage requirements – Private Hire Vehicles – Vehicle Specification

Private Hire Vehicles - Vehicle Specification

Local Government (Miscellaneous) Provision Act 1976

Police & Town Clauses Act 1947

Nottingham City Council has begun consultation on its proposals to introduce specific signage requirements on all Private Hire Vehicles to support public understanding and safety with effect from 1 June 2018.

The proposal is that, with effect from 1 June 2018, all Private Hire Vehicles licensed by Nottingham City Council will have specific identifiers stating:

 ‘Advanced books only otherwise not insured’

The demarcation should be placed on each of the rear doors directly below the window.  The mark up should consist of a black vinyl strip with white lettering at least 4 inches in height for uppercase letters and 2 inches in height for the lowercase letters.

The City Council welcomes the views all parties affected by the proposed changes, including drivers, operators and service users.

The consultation will commence on 2 April 2018 and the closing date for responses is midnight on 29 April 2018.

You can submit your comments in writing to the Licensing Manager, Nottingham City Council, Central Police Station, Byron House, Maid Marian Way, Nottingham NG1 6HS 3AH.
