Wheelchair accessible vehicles

Accessibility

We licence a number of vehicles which are constructed or adapted to safely carry passengers in wheelchairs. These may vehicles include additional features, such as ramps or lifts, restraint points for securely holding a wheelchair in place, and seatbelts for passengers in wheelchairs.


All of our licensed accessible vehicles have either been built and tested in accordance with a manufacturer's specification, approved either by the UK Department for Transport or an EU member state, or have been fully tested by VOSA to ensure their safety.

We maintain a list of wheelchair-accessible taxis, allowing customers to contact them to prebook journeys. We are grateful to the individuals and companies included, who have given us their permission to publish their contact details.

This list is maintained and updated on a monthly bases, so please check this page regularly for the latest version.

The following constitutes a list of vehicles designated under section 167 of the Equality Act 2010.
