Li­cens­ing change

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

THE Im­mi­gra­tion Act 2016 will soon change the way taxi driv­ers are li­censed.

Un­der the pro­vi­sion of the act which comes into force on December 1, the High­land Coun­cil will only be able to grant a taxi driver or pri­vate hire car (PHC) li­cence to those who pass a check to ver­ify they are not dis­qual­i­fied for im­mi­gra­tion sta­tus rea­sons.

Ap­pli­cants for li­cences will need to at­tend their near­est li­cens­ing of­fice with orig­i­nal doc­u­ments show­ing the right to work in the UK.
