Following specialist opinion from Public Health, drivers who are licensed with City of Wolverhampton Council are advised that they should wear a face-covering at all times when passengers are inside their vehicle. It is recommended that passengers wear face coverings at all times whilst inside the licensed vehicle.

Where a face covering cannot be worn for medical reasons, the passenger is expected to sit in the rear of the vehicle and as far away from the driver as possible. The windows should, where practicable, be open for the entire journey to provide adequate ventilation.

Please view our Covid-19: Taxi and Private Hire Webinar for more information.

On those occasions when a driver is asked to prove his identity, the face-covering may be temporarily removed.
