Driving with Taxify in the UK

We're looking for existing PHV Drivers who:

  • Are licensed by TfL to drive PHV or Taxis in London
  • Have a TfL licensed PHV (either owned or rented) with at least 4 seats.

We do not have a program to support new PHV/PHD applications. You can find information regarding applying for licenses on the TfL website.

Taxify is proudly bound by the equalities act and is open to everyone. Discrimination on the basis of, inter alia, age, race, sex orientation or religion is unacceptable if perpetrated by us, Drivers or Passengers. The London Operations Team will be zealous in this regard.

Step 1 - Register at
