Taxi feedback

If you wish to provide any feedback about the service you have received from a Dudley licensed vehicle, whether it is negative or positive, we would like to hear from you. You can give this feedback on the Taxi Advisor page.

Complaints against licensed vehicles or drivers are taken very seriously and will be followed up by the licensing team. However, it is not appropriate for us to pursue an allegation of dangerous or irresponsible driving, as dangerous driving is a criminal offence and should be dealt with by the police.

If you have any serious concerns regarding your journey in a vehicle licensed by Dudley MBC then please contact Dudley Licensing Enforcement on 01384 815101. 

Please provide as many details as possible about the vehicle and / or driver you wish to comment on, to help us identify the vehicle or driver in question. In general, we will need to know either the licensed number of the vehicle (see below for details about Dudley  licensed vehicle identification) or the registration number (even part of the registration number is helpful), together with make, model and colour and the time and place of the journey taken.
