Door Stickers

Southampton City Council (SCC) Licensing Department are holding a public meeting on Wednesday 14th June 2023 with regards to the contentious issue of Door Stickers on Southampton licensed vehicles.

The general public who use SCC licensed private hire vehicles need to know that the vehicle they are getting into, particularly at night, is the vehicle they booked with, showing clearly the name of the company and the license plate number identifiable on the vehicle.

Did you know....

Our association was set up in 2001 to help to promote Southampton Hackney Taxi drivers in our City?

We are interested in promoting the Hackney Carriage trade and in growing our membership.  

All of our members are self employed drivers of white taxis, who are licensed and regulated by Southampton City Council.

Regular consultations are held with Southampton City Council licensing department and licensing councillors including other organisations for the benefit of the group and our historic City.

We are looking forward to working with the Southampton Boat Show organisers https://www.southamptonboatshow.com
