You can get taxis at a rank, hail one in the street or pre-book one, but you can only pre-book minicabs (also called ‘private hire vehicles’ or PHVs).
Minicabs must be run by a licensed operator – otherwise they’re breaking the law.
A number of sex offenders have been discovered working as minicab drivers in the UK. There has also been a long line of convictions for sexual offences carried out by mini- cab drivers.
