Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 17 April 2023 asking for information about Taxi and Private Hire vehicles.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold the information you require.

The information you have requested is contained within the attached spreadsheet. All vehicles are licensed in London by Transport for London.

However, please note that taxi and private hire vehicles are licensed on an annual basis and where there is a period of relicensing some data in the vehicle records are overwritten to reflect the new licence. Therefore, the information provided in the accompanying attachment is a snapshot of all licensed taxi and private hire vehicles as of 27 April 2023.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.
