COVID-19 has undoubtedly impacted the professional driving industry. Private hire drivers and chauffeurs have been faced with new challenges to navigate. The ongoing pandemic has necessitated some temporary changes, which affect the ways in which many drivers and passengers use transport methods.
Guidance has been made available to the public via the gov.uk website regarding the safe conduct of transport services including taxi drivers during the coronavirus pandemic. This guidance outlines exactly who should be using public transportation, under what circumstances, and the social distancing levels that should be applied whilst the pandemic is still in effect.
