Taxis boast new blue licence plates
ALL VEHICLES that have the required licences to drive people to their desired destinations will soon have blue licence plates with white numbers and letters.
The measure has already been put into effect, with some taxis and VTC vehicles sporting the new plates. However, by July 2019 all of them will have to don them.
This is the new way that the General Traffic Department (DGT) has implemented to distinguish those who have all required documentation in order from those who carry out passenger transport services illegally.
Even though the measure has been generally well received by professionals and users, there is a group of taxi drivers who are not on board with the fact that it includes vehicles driven by people with VTC licences – who they are currently engaged in a legal battle with.
