Rent a Taxi

Here at Lynk we have ready-to-go taxis available to rent. When renting a taxi your taxi plate, vehicle and maintenance is normally included and generally your insurance will be extra. Your insurance is personal to you and prices are quoted based on age & driving experience. Lynk has strong contacts in the insurance world and can help you with this. Rent with Lynk

Rent a Plate

The simple renting of a taxi plate (vehicle licence) is a breach of the Taxi Regulations. However, if you have your SPSV driver licence and a suitable car you can enter into an agreement with a taxi plate owner whereby they provide the plate and you provide the vehicle which will be registered to the plate owner. The plate owner will be paid for their side of the agreement. Insurance can be high and finding a plate owner willing to enter into agreement with you can be difficult. Subject to availability, Lynk can help with this so don’t be afraid to ask.

Drive a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle

The National Transport Authority will only issue new taxi licences for wheelchair accessible vehicles. Often, The NTA offer attractive grants to drivers looking to buy or convert to a new wheelchair accessible vehicle, particularly if the vehicle is electric or hybrid. So always check with the NTA website before buying your own vehicle.
