Taxi accident report form

If you've had an accident and the hackney carriage or private hire vehicle is damaged, affecting the safety, performance or appearance of the vehicle then this must be reported to us.

The owner of the hackney carriage or private hire vehicle licensed by us, 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 a garage to make sure it is roadworthy and meets our vehicle standards. There will be a charge for this test.

Also be aware that an insurance company or other legal bodies can contact us for information related to the accident (following a claim), a copy of this report will be provided to them.
