From Waverley District Council:-
Taxis (hackney carriages) are operated by people (proprietors) running them as a business. Proprietors make their own business decisions within the framework permitted by Waverley Borough Council.
They may charge the fares shown on the fare chart as a maximum, and it is at the discretion of the proprietor of the vehicle or the licensed driver, depending on their own arrangements, to charge less. They may not, however charge more than the fares shown on the chart.
The vehicles and their drivers must each hold separate licences from Waverley. Also:
- both the vehicle and the driver should be presentable
- they must carry evidence of the vehicle licence in a visible position - a white licence plate on the rear outside, and a sign in the in the front passenger-side windscreen, both will have the same licence number
- the vehicle licence number is repeated on the fare chart, which should be clearly visible to passengers in the vehicle
- the vehicle will also carry a 'taxi' roof sign.
- the driver will wear a badge which includes his/her photograph, driver licence number and expiry date. The badge must be valid (not out of date) and you may ask to see it
- the driver will have undergone checks to achieve the licence, as will the vehicle, so there should be no problem with asking to see the (up-to-date) driver badge and vehicle licence plate/front window disc. A licensed driver will be proud to show this to you
- No-one should enter a car if they suspect that either it or the driver may not be properly licensed.

"I've used Haslemere Independent taxis for three years now. No matter what job I give them (and all too often it's 5.15am!) they are there. Reliability is everything and that's where they excel. "
Karen Thompson - April 2016
"Mike has been ferrying me around now for over a decade. Not only has he proved himself unfailingly reliable and punctual, with reasonable charges, but we have become good friends. I unreservedly recommend his taxi service."
Godfrey Garrat - January 2011
"I have used Mike Allen since 1993 and found him to be a very amiable chap, hugely reliable and always on time and very flexible if I am occasionally running late! I strongly recommend him."
Mark Tracy - September 2011
"I've used Mike, Mischa and team for 6 years. They are always punctual, completely reliable and very willing to assist at very short notice. I recommend them as the best local taxi firm in Haslemere. "
Rafe Morton - December 2011
"I am a regular business traveller and when I moved to the area 4 years ago I needed someone reliable that I could depend on to do pick up and drop offs at all the London airports.
Mike and his team were recommended to me by a friend in the area and I have now been using Mike for the last 4 years. He has always conducted himself in the most professional manner and has been reliable from day one. I always know that after a long haul flight back into London that there will be someone at the airport to meet me.
If we need a taxi job in the local area his attitude is no different to doing a drop off at the airport.
I would not hesitate in recommending Mike and his team to anyone no matter how big or small the job might be."
Michael Beattie - December 2010
" Mike and his team have been looking after me and the whole family for the past five years now. Whether it's early mornings to the airport, late nights from london, school pick-ups and drop-offs, or just a trip to the local shops, Mike is always there for us. Well done to all and keep up the good work! "
Manu - January 2011
