Public Consultation on SPSV (taxi, hackney or limousine) Driver Entry Requirements

28 October 2016

The Authority is seeking opinions on the current SPSV driver licensing framework, together with the associated testing, training and monitoring of drivers, which has been in place since 2009.

Should the current arrangements continue? Or should revised arrangements be put in place?

We have prepared some information on driver licensing in both Ireland and other relevant jurisdictions to encourage discussion and welcome any ideas you may have in relation to testing an applicant’s suitability to be licensed as a driver of taxis, hackneys or limousines.

The deadline for receipt of submissions by the Authority by email, online form or post is 5pm, Wednesday, 30 November 2016. All submissions may be published.
