Taxis in London

London Black Taxis' (which are no longer exclusively black) are licensed and regulated by the Public Carriage Office which is part of London's Metropolitan Police. Drivers must pass extensive tests on their knowledge of all the streets, landmarks, hotels and train stations in London.

Unlike unlicensed 'minicabs' black taxis can pick passengers up when hailed in the street, and are available when their distinctive yellow 'For Hire' sign at the front of the Taxi is lit. When the driver stops and you tell him where you want to go, he is obliged to take you provided the journey is less than 6 miles (9.6 km). If seat belts are fitted in the taxi, then they must be worn at all times.
