Taxi licences suspended or revoked (FOI)

Taxi licences suspended or revoked (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 16 January 2017.


How many taxi drivers have been suspended or had their licence revoked indefinitely during the last ten years for the following offences and how many suspensions have been changed on appeal as they did to [name redacted] recently:

  • fraud
  • narcotics selling / supplying
  • rape / indecent assault
  • theft
  • grievous bodily harm
  • aggravated assault
  • assault
  • arson
  • murder
  • kidnapping
  • paedophilia
  • using the taxi rank


The Scheduled Public Authority has determined that providing the information requested would exceed the cost limit provisions under Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 and it is therefore refused.

It is estimated that it would take in excess of 12.5 hours to collect the information as a review would have to be undertaken of every taxi driver's records, including anyone who had been a taxi driver over the last ten years.

Article 16

A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive

(1) A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed any fee of an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations for the purposes of Article 15.
