Two types of taxis operate under license within the Borough of Amber Valley:

Hackney Carriages have an illuminated roof sign. and have a meter set to the Council's correct tariff and display a table of fares inside. They can be flagged down for fares.

Private hire vehicles should be booked in advance with a licensed taxi operator. They cannot pick up members of the public off the street

All our fleet are easily recognizable with our distinctive fleet colours of red and white. All our Hackney cars have a white boot and bonnet . Every vehicle has our name and telephone number on the doors in white lettering and carries a Hackney licence disc on the windscreen and a Yellow Hackney plate attached to the rear of the vehicle.

Licensed drivers are required to wear their identification badge at all times. You can also use our Ringback service so you know that your taxi is waiting outside for you.
