1st Taxi provide a taxi service to the Kilbarchan area 24 hours a day.
Taking taxis in Kilbarchan is still a popular option, despite the growth of other alternative ways to get a ride. One of the main reasons for this is that there is a guarantee of quality and safety with a taxi that isn’t available through other transportation options. And here at 1st Taxi, we take this standard and excel at it to ensure you always get the best possible service.
The local licensing authority issues one of two licenses to all taxi drivers in its area – a Hackney Carriage or a Private hire license. Drivers can hold both, allowing them to do either service. The difference is simple – a hackney taxi is the type you can hail on the street while a private hire taxi is the type you pre-book. Most of our drivers are private hire licensed drivers and that’s why we have a booking office and a new app.
Whatever type of license, both have the same checks before being issued including a criminal record check. Local authorities only issue these licenses to people who qualify under their strict rules and this means you can be certain about the type of driver you will receive.
The other thing about using a licensed taxi is that the cars themselves undergo tests as well as the drivers. This means all the vehicles are in top working condition, reliable and well maintained. They only receive a license to be a taxi from the council when they meet certain standards.
