Dundee taxi drivers ordered to adhere to dress code during compliance checks dubbed 'Operation R

Tayside Division Licensing Team continued their compliance deployments, with over 60 taxi drivers spoken to and vehicles examined across Dundee.

The majority of drivers and vehicles complied with conditions and legislation, although a number of vehicles and drivers were instructed to immediately rectify identified issues, including poor vehicle cleanliness, defective lights, and not complying with the taxi drivers' dress code.

Sergeant Ryan MacDonald of the Divisional Licensing Team said: “It is encouraging to see so many taxi drivers complying with their conditions and relevant legislation.

"However unfortunately there are still some drivers who are failing to comply with even basic requirements such as ensuring their vehicle is in a clean and roadworthy condition.

"We shall continue with licensing compliance checks across Tayside whether that be taxis, licensed premises, or second hand dealers throughout the year to ensure that licence conditions are being adhered to."

The driver of a taxi while plying for hire or carrying a passenger must comply with the undernoted minimum dress requirements:- Dress type shirt or blouse with collar or polo shirt, dress type skirt or trousers and dress type shoes, boots or dress sandals. Training shoes, baseball caps, shorts, tracksuits, denim shirt/jeans, casual Tee shirts and football attire are not permitted.
