Taxi penalty points scheme

The Driver Penalty Points Scheme is an element in maintaining and improving service standards.

Taxi penalty points scheme

Hackney cabs and private hire vehicles are an important part of Leicester's public transport system. Taxi drivers play an important role in the city's economy providing a safe and secure means of transport for local residents, workers and visitors to Leicester.

The scheme seeks to provide a consistent approach to dealing with unacceptable conduct such as failures to abide by the Council’s Code of Conduct, the licence conditions or minor offences where revocation, suspension, prosecution may be disproportionate.
