Three PHV drivers have licences SUSPENDED after parking on busy Nottingham taxi rank

Updated: Dec 4, 2023



Nottingham City Council has suspended the licences of three private hire vehicle (PHV) drivers for a period of two weeks after they were found parked up illegally on hackney carriage taxi ranks.


The drivers' licences were temporarily revoked as they were found guilty of parking in the designated NG1 Night Club rank, causing inconvenience to other taxi drivers and compromising public safety.

The NG1 night club, known for its vibrant nightlife and popular among locals and visitors alike, attracts a significant number of people every weekend. The designated Hackney rank outside the club allows licensed taxis to pick up and drop off passengers efficiently, ensuring smooth traffic flow. Private hire drivers can not pick up customers via street requests and can only take work via an operator.

A Nottingham City Council Licensing spokesperson said via social media: “3 PHV drivers have had their NCC Combined driver's licences suspended for 2 weeks for parking in the Hackney rank outside NG1 night club.”
