We hold an exemption certificate which allow us to operate a vehicle without displaying unsightly signage due to the nature of our work and the expections of our clients. The private hire plate and certificate will be stowed in the vehicle and is available for presentation upon request.
Drivers hold a hackney driving licence issued by HBC and will have this on their person, available for presentation upon request however as part of the exemption mentioned above, they are not required to have it immediately displayed.
