Guidance for drivers and operators on safe operation of transport services


COVID-19 Town Centre Update: Please read press release on road closure marking start plans for re-opening of Watford town centre and also visit www.watford.gov.uk/coronavirus-taxis


The Department for Transport has released guidance for drivers and operators on the safe operation of transport services. The guidance can be found here:

To help you to understand the new way of working, we have created a document that you can download and use for your business. A risk assessment is unique to each business so you need to do this yourself. The forms give a number of suggestions for things you may want to think about.

Please remember, the key things to make sure of are:

  • maintain social distancing where possible. If not possible, what else can you do to keep safe.
  • maintain personal hygiene
  • maintain vehicle cleanliness

If you need any help in understanding the form or the DfT guidance, please contact the licensing team by email at licensing@watford.gov.uk or jamie.mackenzie@watford.gov.uk

We will be arranging a number of online sessions where drivers and operators will be able to sign up to listen to updates and ask questions about business.
