WHO ARE WE?
Little White Taxi is a fairly new business. We started in December 2020.
We aim to provide a service absolutely second to none in everything we do.
The Little White Taxi is a restored vintage London taxi.
Once ubiquitous in most UK cities and numbering in the tens of thousands there are less than two thousand left in the UK.
It is estimated there are less than ten licensed to carry passengers in the UK.
Ironically there are none whatsoever licensed in London nor Coventry where they were built.
This example of the iconic London taxi was built in 1995. Perhaps not exactly "vintage" but definitely classic owing to the low numbers left in existence.
The Little White Taxi is fully accessible to manual wheelchairs and has a step and swivel seat to help those less agile.(Although carrying a wheelchair bound passenger does restrict the seating capacity to four people.)
The Little White Taxi is maintained to the highest standard.
The Little White Taxi is environmentally conscious and is fuelled by up to 50% vegetable oil based fuel.
The Little White Taxi is sanitised between every passenger to make it covid secure. Of course, being a purpose built taxi there is a solid partition between the driver and the passenger compartment.
Chris is a professional driver of many years experience. He has passed The Institute of Advanced Motorists advanced driving test both in a taxi and on a motorcycle. He volunteered for some years with a group called "London Advanced Motorcyclists" as an observer (instructor) helping others to pass the advanced test.
He has worked as a Cardington assessed motorcycle instructor.
Chris has held a Suburban London taxi drivers license for many years. He is experienced in helping those who are not so light on their feet and is understanding and accommodating.
All taxi drivers must pass an enhanced DBS (criminal record) check.

But they take time ... and lots of it... to research and put together to provide a truly first class experience.
