Dear Cotswold District Council

I am undertaking some research and making a FOI request for the following information:

• all the taxi operators currently licensed by your licensing authority, their addresses and how long they have been licensed for
• the number of licensed private hire drivers associated with each operator
• the number of licensed private hire vehicles associated with each operator
• the fee and duration of an operator’s licence with your licensing authority
• the fee and duration of a private hire driver’s licence with your licensing authority
• the fee and duration of a private hire vehicle licence with your licensing authority
• the maximum age for a vehicle licensed by your licensing authority
• Is there a knowledge test for private hire drivers?
• Does your licensing authority have published service standards for determining applications for the grant of a private hire driver’s licence? - and if not, what is the normal length of time from receipt of application to grant of licence

Thanking you in advance.

Kind regards

Emma Inglis
