Keep your business compliant and stay ahead of the competition

With the ever-changing taxi industry, it’s hard for any company in this sector to keep up. New regulations, increased customer expectations, and innovations from entrants such as ride-sharing services have made things even more competitive.

Customers in this sector can rely on us for installation and consultancy services. With our knowledge of how these industry trends influence your operations, you can be rest assured your business will be running efficiently.

Compliance Support

Over the past few years, central government and local authorities have been implementing new legislation for taxis. The key requirement is that all taxis and private hire be equipped with CCTV systems to increase safety and security among passengers as well as drivers. In 2021, 5% of authorities require licensed taxis to have on board CCTV and 4% required all private hire vehicles (PHV) to install CCTV. Some councils will also allow taxis to voluntarily install cameras. As of 2023, only 3 councils in the UK do not officially allow the use of cctv systems.
