Dual badges

Wyre dual driver licences entitle the holder to drive both hackney carriage and private hire vehicles that are licensed by Wyre Council. However the driver must adhere to all the conditions and restrictions for the type of licensed vehicle that they are driving.

When working in a private hire vehicle, drivers may only accept fares that have been pre-booked through a Wyre licensed operator and may not use taxi ranks, bus lanes or be flagged down in the street by a member of the public.

Failure to adhere to these rules, may result in legal action and the driver would also risk having their licence revoked or suspended. 

Licensed drivers must wear their badge where it is clearly visible, so that their passengers can be assured that their driver is licensed by Wyre and has undergone all the necessary checks.
