Financed using Defra’s Clean Air grant Nottingham City Council is encouraging hackney taxi drivers to make their next taxi an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) to support our Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicle Strategy 2017-2020.

To encourage uptake of ULEV hackney taxis we are offering up to £3,464 of financial support. This includes contributions to vehicle licence fees & MOT over 3 years; first year insurance; standard vehicle livery; meter installation and a new home charge point or charging allowance. This is a time limited offer and available to the first 100 ULEV hackney taxi proprietors.

Funding is awarded under De Minimis State Aid rules. Hackney taxi drivers must provide evidence to apply, including their valid Blue Hackney Taxi Licence and ULEV vehicle registration document (logbook).
