As Aberdeen's largest local taxi fleet, we offer a wide variety of vehicles throughout the year 24 hours a day 7 days a week. All vehicles carry an identification plate unique to that vehicle.
Taxis have a yellow coloured plate with a licensed taxi number, registration number, colour, make and model and, the number of passengers the vehicle is licensed to carry. At the top of the plate is the licensing authority with the crest and the vehicle also has a white roof sign.
Private Hire vehicles carry no roof sign, alternatively they have a red identification plate front and rear on the vehicle which has the same information as the yellow plate on the taxi.
