SECTION 167 EQUALITY ACT 2010 as amended by the Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Disabled Persons) Act 2022 - Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles

These Acts make it a criminal offence for drivers of designated taxi and private hire vehicles to refuse to carry passengers in standard manual wheelchairs, to fail to provide them with appropriate assistance or to charge them extra.

 

The requirements of section 165 do not apply to drivers who have a valid medical exemption certificate and are displaying a valid exemption notice. If the driver is exempt then they will have been issued with an exemption notice. This notice must be displayed in the near side window for approaching passengers and wheelchair users to see.
