Public liability insurance for taxi drivers

What is Public Liability Insurance?

Public liability insurance is cover that provides you with financial protection should a member of the public make a compensation claim against you. This includes claims that are the result of your actions, and for taxi drivers that could mean injury claims from a passenger after a road traffic accident, or even damage to their property. For anyone who has dealings with the public, liability insurance is essential.

At Park Insurance, our 20 years’ experience of brokering great deals on insurance for taxi drivers makes us experts at finding a policy that suits both your business and your budget.


Why do I need it?


If your job puts you in direct contact with the public, then you need to consider if your finances and your future would be better protected if you take out public liability insurance. For taxi drivers, this is one of the most important types of insurance, as it offers you protection against:

  • Financial claims for injury from members of the public
  • Third party injury claims, for example after a road traffic accident
  • Claims for damage to property


If you are working on behalf of a local authority then you may also need to show that you have adequate public liability insurance before an operator’s licence can be issued. At Park Insurance, our expert brokers have years of experience in sourcing comprehensive, affordable insurance for taxi drivers, and can advise you on the level of cover you need to conform to all local legislation and licensing requirements.
