Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 1 November 2019 asking for information about taxis.

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.

As of 19 November, there were 1,296 taxis that are 14 years old and have licences which expire between 1 November 2019 and the end of October 2020. These vehicles will not be eligible to be relicensed as they will exceed the maximum age limit of 15 years once their current licence expires.

If this is not the information you are looking for, 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.

Yours sincerely
