Taxi licence statistics

The table below show taxi licence statistics for the most recent reporting period. The purpose of these tables is to show changes in licence numbers following the introduction of annual taxi licences in July 2014.

Figures are updated and published on the TSC website each month. Figures shown consist of both active licences and those that have been approved but have not yet been operationalised at the time of reporting.
