City of Wolverhampton Council launched a compliance operation within their own region checking the legality of taxis and private hire vehicles (PHVs).

Working in collaboration with West Midlands Police, officers are utilising advanced infrared technology. The initiative aimed to detect illegal number plates on taxis and PHVs across Birmingham and Wolverhampton.

This operation aligns with similar enforcement actions taken by Wolverhampton licensing officers around the UK, but most recently in London and Manchester.

By leveraging infrared technology, authorities are able to efficiently identify and address compliance issues, ensuring that all taxis and PHVs operating in the area adhere to the required legal standards.

A City of Wolverhampton Council Licensing spokesperson said via social media: “Wolverhampton Taxi Compliance in partnership with West Midlands Police in Birmingham and Wolverhampton using infrared technology checking illegal number plates on Taxis and PHVs.”
