Recent climate, energy and geopolitical challenges, in particular, have made it unfeasible for all end of life SPSVs to be replaced before they reach their final operation date. These regulations facilitate the licensing of eligible taxis and hackneys for additional operation in excess of the usual Maximum Permissible Age Requirements.
These regulations permit an extension to the final operation date of licensed vehicles due to reach their final date of operation/maximum permissible age between 13 March 2020 and 31 December 2024.
SPSV licence holders will receive communications in the coming weeks confirming the new final operation date of their current licensed vehicle.
