We are receiving many requests from brokers regarding the fitting of screens in public and private hire vehicles to protect drivers and promote social distancing.
We are pleased to confirm that these are acceptable in line with our Taxi policy, and we do not need to be notified, presuming they meet the following criteria:
- Screens are fitted professionally
- Screens are fitted in line with Licensing Authority guidance / regulations
- Screens do not impede the driver or compromise the safety of the vehicle or occupants
We hope this helps you assure your clients. You can download a letter confirming this here.
For any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Protective Screens’.
