Your taxi insurance questions answered

What is the difference between private and public hire taxi insurance?

Private Hire – Pre-booked appointments only, these cars cannot be flagged down.

Public Hire – Will always have a roof light indicating the vehicle is a taxi. These taxis can be flagged down and can offer immediate pick up. A good example of this is a black cab/hackney carriage.
Can I use my existing vehicle as a taxi?
Not all vehicles can be used as taxis however it is up to the licensing authority as to whether they will plate the vehicle. 
Can I insure a fleet of taxis?
Yes we do offer insurance for taxi fleets. For more information give us a call 0800 023 7213
Can I drive other vehicles if I take out comprehensive taxi insurance?
Sorry no. Due to the circumstances under which taxis are used and the significant difference in vehicle types, this extension is not available for taxi insurance policies.
Which types of vehicle can I cover?
If you are carrying passengers for hire or reward, we can provide taxi insurance cover for most licensed vehicles.
Can I use my taxi for social use as well as public or private hire?
Your taxi insurance policy will allow for social, domestic and pleasure use in addition to hire and reward.

However, many local authorities forbid a plated vehicle to be used by an unregistered driver, so it’s always best to check first.
Can I add any other drivers to my policy?
Drivers can be named on the policy as long as they hold the correct licence. The named driver must also fit the criteria set out by the insurer.
Do you offer short-term policies?
Currently all of our taxi insurance policies are for 12-month periods only.
Within how long do I need to declare any previous claims or convictions?
We need to know about all previous claims within the last five years (whether your fault or not). All motoring offences within the last five years, or those still endorsed on your driving licence must be disclosed when taking out your taxi insurance policy.
What optional cover should I consider?
Here are a few optional extras that may be useful to you as a taxi driver:

Taxi breakdown insurance – our breakdown insurance options aim to get you back on the road as quickly as possible. If the vehicle is unable to be fixed at the roadside it will be taken to a local garage.

Excess protection – safeguard yourself against the cost of motor insurance excess in case you need to make a claim.

Liability insurance – don’t put your livelihood in jeopardy. With liability insurance you are protecting both your business and those around you.
How long is my NCD valid for?
We can accept NCD up to 2 years old providing there is a valid reason this has not been in use. 
Can I use my NCD on more than one vehicle?
You can only use NCD on one vehicle at a time; however we would look to allow an introductory discount for additional vehicles where the first vehicle is earning NCD.  We also look to allow an introductory discount for NCD earned on private vehicles. 

We're not the kind of people to try and pull the wool over our customer's eyes. So, we use Feefo, an entirely independent third party company, to collect feedback on every policy we sell.

We value your feedback and will always act upon it. If you'd like to make a suggestion as to how we could improve our products or customer service please use our contact us form.

Being a taxi driver is a serious commitment. You have to invest in your vehicle as well as fuel, your license, keeping it on the road and keeping it nice and clean. And that’s before you spend endless hours working hard and dealing with people from all walks of life.

After all that, the last thing you want to do is get home and spend hours in front of a computer screen trying to compare taxi insurance deals (and cheap taxi insurance doesn’t mean it’s the best taxi insurance). But with Staveley Head, you only need to call our specialist taxi insurance team to make sure you’re getting the most competitive prices.

Or our online quote system can compare taxi insurance rates in minutes. And if we require any additional details, we’ll call you back as soon as we can.
