Taxi - accident report form
We have developed an online form 'report an accident to us', so if you have had an accident and the hackney carriage or private hire vehicle is damaged that affects the safety, performance or appearance of the vehicle then this must be reported to us, using this form.
It is the owner of the hackney carriage or private hire vehicle licensed by us who is responsible for reporting the accident. This should be done as soon as reasonably practicable, and in any case within 72 hours.
The vehicle may also need to be checked by the garage, to ensure the vehicle is roadworthy and meets the our vehicle standards, there will be a charge for this test.
Also be aware they an Insurance Company or other Legal Bodies can contact us for information relating to this accident (following a claim), a copy of this report will be provided to them.
