New here and new to Private hire taxi, help with questions

Discussion in 'Birmingham, UK' started by very_452001, Aug 15, 2018.

  1. Hi,

    Im totally new to private hire taxi and I just need to go to pick up my first ever license from Birmingham City council before starting a job like this for the 1st time. Hopefully by registering on these forums I will get good advice that can guide me in the right direction.

    Ok the questions are:

    - Where is the cheapest place online to get private hire insurance? Or does anyone know any local insurance places in Birmingham?

    - What type of covers available for private hire insurance and what add ons are typically available?

    - I have built up 6 years no claims bonus. Can this no claims bonus be transferred to taxi insurance?

    - What insurance is needed for uber eats or uber health? Will normal car insurance will do for these?

    - Does the address on the insurance has to match the address on the private hire license when applying for Uber? Is Uber a national company where there is no restrictions to where you can work in the country?

    - How does Uber verify the uploaded insurance document whether it covers for private hire?

    - Any other tips or advice on how to get the right insurance for cheap and what type of cover is suitable?
