Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles

From 6 April 2017 drivers of taxis and private hire vehicles designated by the local licensing authority as being wheelchair accessible must comply with the requirements of Section 165 of the Equality Act 2010, unless they have been issued with an exemption certificate.

A designated vehicle should be capable of carrying the passenger whilst in their wheelchair. The driver of those vehicles must provide mobility assistance to passengers as reasonably required and drivers/operators are also prohibited from making an additional charge for carrying a passenger in their wheelchair.

You can read the statutory guidance on access for wheelchair users to taxis and private hire vehicles on the government website.
