We are consulting jointly with the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and the Department for Transport on proposed regulations which will place a duty on local licensing authorities in England and Wales to share the vehicle registration number (VRN) of all vehicles licensed.
The consultation seeks views on:
- the creation of a centralised database of all taxis and private hire vehicles to enable their identification by those local authorities who wish to introduce a charging Class A-C Clean Air Zone in England (or equivalent in Wales)
- the legislative route needed to place a duty on local authorities to share details of licensed taxis and private hire vehicles.
This consultation is being held on gov.uk
