Welcome to the London-Taxi website, the main resource for all things related to London’s World Famous London-Taxis
The London Taxi is renowned for being the best in the World an accolade that has been justly awarded to the Taxi and Drivers due to the stringent Licensing regulations that were put in place by the Public Carriage Office many years ago. A prospective Taxi driver needs to attain “the knowledge of London” before he receives his license and shiny new badge, this means committing to memory every street, restaurant, Government Building, Monument, places of interest, Church’s, Mosques and basically any place that a customer might ask to be taken to within a 6 mile radius of Charing Cross, they then have to learn the suburbs of London and take an additional driving test.
The vehicles have to be inspected annually by Transport for London and undergo a test that is at least 10 times stricter than a car MOT test where even if the paintwork does not shine enough can mean the Taxi will fail its test!
Taxis have been plying for hire in this great Capital City for over 350 years when they were first licensed by decree of Oliver Cromwell.
