Our ref: FOI-0335-1718/GH
Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 16 May 2017 asking for information about taxi identifiers.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our Information Access Policy. I can confirm that we hold the information you require. You asked for:
“..the legal basis requiring display of Identifier on windscreen and rear window of Black Cab Taxi is by virtue of Section 28 and 28A of the London Cab Order 1934. I have located section 28 but have not been able to locate section 28A. I have requested confirmation that section 28A exists..”
I have attached a copy of the January 2012 amendment to the London Cab Order 1934 as requested.
Guidance regarding the requirement to display taxi driver identifiers was provided in our December 2011 Taxi and Private Hire Notice (12/11). This is available on our website: www.tfl.gov.uk/info-for/taxis-and-private-hire/notices-and-consultations.
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.
If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
