Please note that inclusion on this list does not imply any recommendation or endorsement by the Council.

We will update this list as necessary with any revisions. Tunbridge Wells Borough Council cannot accept responsibility for the content of any external websites.

The Department for Transport has produced statutory guidance on ‘Access for Wheelchair users to taxis and private hire vehicles’.

Section 166 of the Act allows licensing authorities to exempt drivers from these duties, if they are satisfied that it is appropriate to do so, on medical grounds or because the driver’s physical condition makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for them to comply with the duties.

To apply for an exemption please visit our making an application for exemption under the Equality Act 2010 page.
