Any company in Bradford who is either hackney carriage (HC) or private hire (PH) should be licensed through the HC/PH licensing team at BMDC and all will have undergone relevant training. All HC/PH drivers have a DBS check in order to obtain their badge.  BMDC do not provide a list but assume parents/carers would contact their own local licensed HC/PH companies for transport arrangements.

Make sure Taxi companies used are licensed with the HC/PH and have a badge.

Below explains the differences between Hackney Carriage and Private Hire

Hackney Carriage (HC)
When using a hackney carriage the fare will always be on the meter. The meter should always be on. You can pay less than the metered fare by agreement.

Private Hire (PH)
Private hire  should always be booked through an operator and a  price agreed for the journey. Never make private arrangements with private hire drivers as this is illegal.
