Find out about taxi licensing enforcement
Maintaining a high standard of vehicle and driver is something that we take very seriously and we carry out regular checks of vehicles and drivers in order to ensure that they are meeting their licensing requirements.
We will periodically involve Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and Leicestershire Police Constabulary in pulling over vehicles and carrying out on the spot inspections.
Prosecution can be used to deal with serious issues relating to licensed or unlicensed drivers, where an offence has been proven to have been committed. Melton Borough Council has made a policy for all taxi drivers.
