Taxi passenger information

We are responsible for licensing hackney carriage (black cabs) and private hire vehicles and their drivers in Manchester and are committed to providing a professional, safe and high-quality transport service.

You should always plan to get home safe and take a taxi you can trust.

Both hackney carriage and private hire drivers are issued with an id badge showing their photograph and licence details.  This badge must be visible and can be worn or displayed in the vehicle.
