Taxi hire regulations in France

Vehicle obligation:
All our taxi vehicles are lawfully fitted with a specific and sealed, metering taxi device, used to calculate the proper fees of a given journey and are identifiable by an illuminated taxi sign attached to the car's roof. This taxi sign (also called "tariff repeater") will provide any passer-by or law enforcement officer with the tariff used inside the car at any given time.

Driver commitment:

Fully licensed taxi drivers have to comply with rigorous training, qualified by two detailed exams before a licence is granted. A licensed taxi driver has to follow specific training, which includes not only all taxi regulations and law, but will also include first aid training. Amongst many other various subjects a topography class (for best selection of the most appropriate itinerary) is also included. The qualifying driver, prior to the training period has to be fit and will need to pass a thorough professional medical test. Condition N° 1 to apply for taxi training will be to have held, for more than two years, a licence to drive a light vehicle and to have a totally unblemished Police record.

Your Guarantee:

Contrary to unmarked cars (non-taxi or private cars) French regulations on a taxicab vehicle compels that any taxi car has to pass an annual contrôle technique, or used car testing (MOT). The same annual control also applies to the metering gears together with an updating of fares. Further, it will need to be shown that the vehicle is an authorized registered taxi company. All client passengers are covered by an appropriated insurance specifically designed for paying passengers and their luggage. Taxi-du-Minervois is also covered with a suitable professional civil liability warranty.

Vehicle requirements:

It is important to point out that one has to be cautious when scheduling online transport reservation. There are a number of bogus websites at this time offering low-cost prices for taxi services. Many of those ‘so-called’ taxi companies are operating outside the law and have no qualifying status for the safety of paying passengers. The description and label that they award themselves, as 'taxi' is no more than a euphemism in order to make fast money with no regulation. After reading the above, it is easy to understand that a taxi company (no matter which one you plan to use) is - like in any other business field - required to comply with strict regulations imposed by law for your protection and safety. A legitimate taxi company will by law guaranty the welfare of passengers left under its responsibility.
